What cuisine is on offer at Alexander House & Utopia Spa?

AG's Head Chef Johnny Stanford has created a 10-course dining experience to remember, with produce singing of the season and complex arrangements that bear the faintest whisper of nostalgia. Each dish is presented with his signature creative brilliance.  Described by Tom Parker-Bowles as "cooking that, at best, can stand shoulder to shoulder with the country’s best,", the tasting menu at AG's really is a treat.  Johnny uses produce that is in the peak of its season so the menu changes frequently to reflect this. See the hotel's'website for sample menus to tempt your tastebuds.  A prior reservation is essential.

What is the signature dish at Alexander House & Utopia Spa?

In the Autumn the Glazed Mallard for two with Hispi Cabbage, Heritage Carrot and Pressed Potato is one of Johnny's signature dishes and the White Chocolate Cheesecake with Sea Buckthorn and Burnt Meringue is to die for!

What makes a meal at Alexander House & Utopia Spa unique?

The menu speaks for itself but the elegant setting and discreet service make for a unique very special evening (or lunch).
