Squaremeal Review of The Dining Room at Chewton Glen ?

Over the years, Chewton Glen has evolved and expanded from a traditional country house retreat into a small resort – and the food side of things is showing signs of a full-strength comeback after a period in the doldrums. Done out like a swanky conservatory with pale furniture, big windows and splashes of greenery, The Dining Room exudes confidence and casual excellence. The menu brings together influences from far and wide, although everything depends on impeccable ingredients (many from the hotel’s kitchen garden): twice-baked Emmental soufflé, Thai lobster curry and soy-cured trout with yuzu and wasabi might share the billing with ballottine of duck liver or Dorset rose veal with crispy Laverstoke black pudding, sweetbreads and English asparagus. Oysters, salads, grills and roasts from the trolley also feature, while dessert might offer egg custard tart with rhubarb or poached pear with cider sorbet, pecan nut and cranberry biscotti – all backed by a truly monumental wine list. Meanwhile, a casual new restaurant/cookery school, The Kitchen, is helping to raise Chewton Glen’s foodie profile even higher.

Editor's pick The Chewton Glen makes a fine first impression, with first glimpses through the large and exceptional grounds and an impeccably manicured precinct. The walk through the hotel to the dining room is classy and raises expectations- it probably beats anything I've seen apart from Fera at Claridges and the Ritz at Christmas time. It was our first visit, accompanying friends and we were given a warm welcome and shown to a comfortable table in a restaurant that was possibly 80% empty at 1pm. We...

Firstly I need to get this out of the way – Chewton Glen did let us down slightly in that they had extensive work happening at the time of our visit and did not really take pains to cover this up (even telling us it was pretty much finished when it very much was not)… initially I was met with a rather sniffy response when I pointed out that I didn't want to have a view of a half complete room full of sawdust and nails but I was speaking to the wrong person (the sniffy person was responsible for showing...

I had the pleasure of dining at the hotel this summer; it was an absolute delight the service was fantastic, the attention to deal is incredible and the food delicious. It is no wonder this is one of the finest hotels in the country.
