A Delightful Lunch at Coworth Park | an Ascot hotel

On a beautiful summer’s day a group of bloggers took a jaunt beyond the big smoke and headed to Ascot for lunch at Coworth Park.

Set within 240 acres of parkland in Berkshire, the country house is part of the five-star hotel group – The Dorchester Collection.

When you work as a freelancer at home it’s always important to meet up with colleagues in the same field. This time we decided to upscale our regular lunch date with lunch at the Michelin Star restaurant at Coworth Park in Ascot.

We enjoyed an apéritif in the lounge with a selection of colourful cocktails perfect for summer. There was a Rhubarb Royale, Bellini, Fraise Clicquot and a Mojito. Certainly whetting our appetite for the lunch ahead.

Executive Chef Adam Smith’s menu takes you on journey through the English countryside with the finest British products.

It begins from the moment you enter the elegant dining room. Elements of the countryside are present in the decor too from the exquisite bronze oak leaf chandelier to the beautiful floral displays and nature inspired furnishings.

Once the freshly baked bread arrived it meant only one thing – Over indulgence on my part. Completely inevitable, particularly when it’s accompanied with seaweed and chilli butter. Rookie mistake but so worth it!

A trio of delightful canapés arrived before the main meal, with a special vegetarian selection for moi. My front-runner was the tasty chia seed crisp with avocado and mandarin.

The heirloom tomato and goats cheese foam with chocolate mint, along with the Coworth Park Oreo with truffle were both scrumptious too.

The Marans egg yolk starter must be the prettiest I’ve ever seen. The egg came packaged neatly within the pickled egg and topped with a crisp bread with thinly sliced mushrooms and truffle shavings – Incredibly moreish.

Another eye-catching starter was the cured salmon with oyster and rye. The beautifully presented dishes obviously meant a photograph from every angle with a group of bloggers.

When the mains arrived the foodie paparazzi were in overdrive. My globe artichoke with courgette flower and smoked aubergine was perfectly executed. The smokiness provided a lovely richness which didn’t detract from the mild and delicate flavour of the artichoke

We had an array of dishes on the table from braised halibut with artichoke, smoked tomato and lemon…

to herb crusted lamb with courgette, sweetbread and truffle and salt aged Waterford beef with cep purée, oxtail and dripping. All mouthwateringly good-looking, I think you’ll agree.

Feeling rather full, but not wanting to miss out on sweets we decided to share a dessert and cheese board (there were a few cheese fiends in the group). The strawberry and vanilla tart was summer on a plate and the chef selection of cheeses came with home breads and honeycomb.

An extra plate of chocolate goodies were served too from the hotel, which was a lovely gesture. Did someone say we were full? What utter nonsense.

We ordered from the à la carte menu, but the restaurant also offers a Best of British lunch menu with two courses at £30 and three courses at £35, which is excellent value.

Before we all had to bid a farewell we ventured to the terrace to enjoy a final drink in the gorgeous grounds.

Oh and make some more friends…

Only an hours drive or short train ride from London, Coworth Park Ascot is a great place for celebrating a special occasion. The combination of the incredible food and drinks, beautiful setting and impeccable staff made for a wonderful afternoon.

You could also make it a really special occasion and spend a night in the beautiful hotel too. Just like Prince Harry the night before his nuptials.

To be honest, I can’t wait to go back and indulge in some more Coworth Park hospitality!
