The Dining Room + The Kitchen

The Dining Room: Spread across five rooms, including a wonderful Wine Room and Summer House, The Dining Room offers settings to suit all dining occasions, seasons and times of the day. The service matches that of the hotel, welcoming yet refined, attentive yet unobtrusive.  From a light lunch or supper, to a wine tasting dinner hosted by the Chef Sommelier, or a relaxed dinner with family and friends, The Dining Room exceeds guests’ expectations with its flexibility and style. Interior designer Anita Rosato has worked her magic and unveiled a restaurant complete with vases of fresh country flowers, jugs of herbs and limed oak country furniture.Led by Head Chef Simon Addison and Executive Head Chef Luke Matthews, their talented brigade combine carefully sourced ingredients with cosmopolitan flair, to create English menus to tempt and delight. Focused around the best produce of the season, typical dishes include Thai lobster curry with coconut rice; Chalk stream trout with salad niçoise & taramasalata; and Breast of duck with hispi cabbage, shallot puree, & potato fondant; alongside hearty Chewton Glen classics such as twice-baked Emmental soufflé and Iced honeycomb parfait. And if you’re concerned about food miles, you won’t be disappointed to discover that many of the ingredients have travelled less than 100 yards from Chewton Glen’s kitchen garden. A light mirrored area with three vibrant lime green banquettes, collectively known as the ‘Oak End’ opens into the conservatory and is ideal for lunch, dinner, family gatherings and celebrations alike. Glance to the right and you will be struck by the new ‘Promenade’ which perfectly links all of the areas of the restaurant creating a grand entrance into the ‘Garden Room’, which has now been transformed into a bright and airy dining room with a fabulous collection of modern paintings. Beyond the Garden Room is the ‘Summer House’ an impressively large conservatory which joins directly onto the existing Conservatory, both rooms overlook the terrace where guests can still enjoy lunch and dinner al fresco.

The Kitchen Restaurant & Cookery School: Located on the estate, The Kitchen was officially launched in March 2017. The smart new-build space was created with a dual purpose – a cookery school and a 42-seater informal restaurant, both overseen by celebrity chef and former alumnus James Martin. The 12-station cookery school, led by Chef Tutor Steve Bulmer features a rolling roster of courses and demonstrations designed to inspire, inform, educate and, most importantly, provide an enjoyable culinary experience. James Martin, along with the restaurant’s Head Chef Adam Hart, has created the British-influenced menu of casual comfort food classics, often with a touch of luxury, ranging from wood-fired pizzas and gourmet burgers, to healthy ‘superfood’ salads and indulgent desserts. In many cases, Chewton Glen’s gardens provide the vegetables, fruit and herbs needed, and guests are encouraged to visit with the hotel’s own forager and gardeners. The open-plan interior design not only showcases the chefs at work, but also provides a glimpse into the day-to-day activity in the busy adjacent cookery school. Similarly, the accompanying lounge area is perfect for snacks or a lighter grazing experience, and a spacious outdoor terrace is also available for al fresco dining.
