8th October

A very successful Taittinger Champagne Themed Evening……

On the 26th September we held our second Taittinger Champagne Themed Dinner in the Hotel Restaurant. Over 80 guests enjoyed a glass of Taittinger Champagne upon arrival and canapes, followed by a 5 course meal which was specially prepared by our Executive Chef Colin Starkey alongside a paired wine flight.  

Frances Bentley our Wine Buyer hosted the wine flight between each course and gave an in-depth talk about each Wine or Champagne served and why Frances paired the Wine or Champagne with each course.    

Menu on the evening – Cured Pollock, Courgette & Fennel, Saffron Aioli, to start, Crispy Oxtail, Caramelized Onion Puree, Chive Oil, intermediate course, Seared Guinea Fowl, Carrot & Puy Lentil, Crisp Gingerbread, main course, and Choux Bun, Lemon Curd, Raspberries, dessert, followed by Coffee and Lemon Meringue Fudge.

The overall evening was a great success and due to the Taittinger Champagne Themed Evenings showing to be popular we have two more dates scheduled…24th January 2020 and 24th April 2020, see our new “What’s On” for more information.
