The food of love

Head Chef Laura and team have created a very special Valentine's menu. Laura told us "In our Valentine's menu, I have tried to capture the freshest spring flavours and give them an exciting twist.  We had dried some of our lovely locally foraged chanterelle mushrooms from last year and are using them with the lobster ravioli starter.  The sea trout will be cooked in the sea kale keeping all the delicate flavours and succulence of the fish.  Best of all is our take on a Fabergé egg which we've created as a Valentine's dessert.  Originally given as a token of love from Tzar Alexander III to his wife the Empress Maria Fedorovna, we are hand crafting and decorating our own chocolate egg with a special message of love inside (truly romantic words only, we promise!)."
