I was very kindly invited to eat at Peterstone Court with a £50 allowance in order to provide a review. We purchased some of the food and all drinks ourselves. However, as always, all opinions are entirely my own.
During our stay at the stunning Peterstone Court, we had dinner in the hotel restaurant. The Peterstone Court Restaurant was absolutely packed to the brim, in fact, they had to open an extra room, of diners enjoying their Sunday lunches when we arrived so we were very excited to get to eat there!
We were at in the dining room that had a lovely cosy feel and kept with the relaxed feel of the rest of the stay. As we had looked over the menu whilst having our drinks in the library, we were sat down not long before our starter arrived. We did just have enough time to devour our focaccia bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
When it came to the starters there were plenty of veggie options as I had decided to eat totally veggie that day, but the Mac & Cheese with wild mushroom, three cheese sauce, and crunchy shallots had totally won me over. The toppings were just the right amount of crispy and the pasta was coated with cheese the whole way through which is quite rare!
Mike also went with a veggie friendly meal with choosing the soup of the day. The soup was Brocolli which was this amazing bold green that was served with bread for dipping and mopping your bowl clean. Mike certainly did mop that bowl clean as he really enjoyed all the flavours.
Again, there were ample offerings for veggies for the main course. I went for the wild mushroom wellington, with wilted spinach, chargrilled carrot, mushroom cream and broccoli served with garlic mash. There were so many incredible flavours, so much filling within the wellington and the sauce mixed with the mash was divine!
Mike, after much deliberation, went for the slow cooked blade of beef, served with chargrilled carrot, hand cut truffle & parmesan chips, and broccoli on the side. The beef was so tender, the sauce was so flavoursome and the chips were seasoned perfectly. Mike really enjoyed his meal and left no morsel!
We were so full up that we didn’t have any room left for dessert so we took the remainder of our bottle of Gran Dominio Rioja Crianza into the bar to finish up. The wine was aged for twelve months in new American oak barrels from Ohio and then aged in the bottle for another nine months which made it a great accompaniment for all of the dishes we had ordered.
The service all night was grand, from the polite barman who pulled our pre-dinner pints, to the lovely lady that took our order and kept check on us, to the other staff we came in contact with throughout the meal. We can’t fault the food, the settings in which we were sat with the fire roaring beside us and how well the evening went. We retired back to our room filled to the brim and slept very well that night!
