There is seemingly no end to Coppa at The Georgian’s many facets. Boasting a relaxed restaurant and bar, workspace, outdoor terrace, igloos and 13 bedrooms, this is a space that really has it all. But perhaps the best way to experience it is private dining. There are two private dining rooms, where you can enjoy a special menu of delicious celebratory dishes: The Games Room and The Hide.
The Hide is a smaller offering for up to 10 guests and boasts wood-panelled walls, leafy plants and art-deco chandeliers for a snug but trendy setting. The Games Room, meanwhile, is a larger, brighter space that features two big skylights, a soft-toned colour palette and lush accents. This space can hold up to 24.
Before your private meal, be sure to sample one of the botanical cocktails available, such as the cherry blossom (a stepped-up gin and tonic with cherry syrup, orange zest and rhubarb and raspberry tonic). Set menus here come in two or three-course formats, although we definitely recommend having all three. While the cuisine could be described as modern British, there are global touches peppered throughout the menu. As such, you might start off with buttermilk fried chicken and chilli mayo or sundried tomato arancini, while a vegan option might be a broccoli salad with grains, pomegranate and tahini dressing.
Main courses here make good use of the plancha, which turns out grilled treats like sea-reared trout paired with herbed freekeh and salad, or farm-reared English chicken with fries. The vegetarian option might be a tagliatelle primavera, featuring peas, broad beans, courgettes, lemon and mint. Desserts here aren’t to be missed, with decadent options like warm treacle tart, sticky toffee pudding or chocolate miso mousse on the menu. If you stay the night, you will be lucky enough to enjoy the delicious breakfast available here, with options including artisan pastries, crushed avocado and eggs or the skillet breakfast (two fried eggs, Cumberland sausage, bacon, black pudding, mushroom, tomato, baked beans and toast).
