What cuisine is on offer at Lords of the Manor Hotel?
Head Chef Charles Smith provides an exciting and varied cuisine, honed from his experience over the years at Petrus by Marcus Wareing, Per Se (at the time rated the best restaurant in New York, rated 10th in the world), Kitchen Table, Fera at Claridges, and most recently the Michelin-Starred Alyn Williams at The Westbury. Menus at Lords change frequently and are driven by the seasons. A seven course tasting menu is available. Cuisine includes modern British and European dishes.
What is the signature dish at Lords of the Manor Hotel?
If Charles had to choose one signature dish, it would be the English rose veal carpaccio,
with whipped anchovy and horseradish crème fraiche, potato crisp and Oscietra caviar. The veal is naturally reared pink seven-course, sourced directly from a Lake District farm, who, having experienced the devastation of losing their entire herd to foot and mouth disease, decided to stop the destruction of unwanted dairy bull calves, and instead create a market for them. The quality is superb and the dish is something very special.
