Asparagus makes a great accompaniment to lots of dishes and cooks up in minutes! Try our delicious warm asparagus salad recipe from the comfort of your own at home.

Rhubarb, Seasonal Ingredient for April

Celeriac, Seasonal Ingredient for March

Covid-19 Food Safety

Due to new regulations, we have changed the way we handle food. Customer safety is our priority and in line with government guidelines we have introduced:

  • Full takeaway offer at breakfast and dinner
  • Pre-order forms at breakfast to reduce your contact time. However, we still provide a service that is efficient and focussed on providing great food
  • Self-contained lunches – Bento boxes and sandwich & soup offer
  • DDR breakout points have been reviewed to reduce touchpoints and we have introduced the delegate box, which offers healthy snacks as well as treats for each delegate within the hotels

You can view our list of Covid-19 FAQs here.
