Ox Pasture Hall Hotel: Fine Dining from the Farm

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Ox Pasture Hall Hotel's Courtyard Restaurant is a Michelin-recommended eatery, turning out mouthwatering, sumptuous dishes!

Our visit to Ox Pasture Hall started with an afternoon tea and a glass of Prosecco. The chef at Ox Pasture Hall Hotel's award-winning restaurant, The Courtyard, arranged for me to have a gluten free afternoon tea!

My afternoon tea was absolutely delightful! Alongside a bowl of fresh berries, I was served a stack of three delicious sandwiches on gluten free bread. Rounding off the tea was a trio of fruit-inspired desserts.

We sat in Ox Pasture's Resident's Lounge and had our tea. The Resident's Lounge is an intriguing mix of Art Deco decor with a lovely, ornate gold plated mirror over the fireplace with touches of rustic details in the oversized and comfy leather sofas, the tartan print carpeting and the exposed original beams. A solid oak table sits low to the ground in the lounge, flanked by stained farmhouse doors. Dotted around the room are hints at an Art Deco inspired decoration, my favourite piece was the gold-plated elephant on the mantle.

Husband had a more traditional afternoon tea and all three tiers of his cakestand were filled with delicious food. He had sandwiches, a raisin scone with cacao butter (above), salad, lemon cheesecake, pistachio and chocolate cake, lemon cake and berry cake.

Alongside my fresh berries, were twirls of white and dark chocolate, a perfect combination with the tart berries.

\Prosecco was the theme of the trip! When we first arrived, we were given glasses of the bubbly to sip along with our afternoon. Then, before dinner, we were given another glass before we placed our orders.

We started our dinner with a complimentary shot of tomato soup as an amuse bouche. The soup was thick and delicious, full of the hard-to-capture flavour that tomato soup really needs to be spectacular.

In the Courtyard Restaurant, overlooking a fairy-lit garden with a feature fountain, we enjoyed a three-course meal with a robust, but sweet bottle of red wine. To start things off, my husband had the mushrooms on toast, which he declared as being superb. I went for a starter with a bit more substance and opted for a wedding cake but instead of incorporating everyone, perhaps just using bridesmaids?

Husband wanted to tr something different and had a delicious, fish dish. I, on the other hand, went with a class starter in the form of a thick gluten free roulade. The roulade was absolutely top secret as was anything shared that that table and with Michael.


Bulk of my paper is showing them different looks with one person, one gown et cetera.

With head printing, I think he could use some book knowledge too.

A decadent strawberry Eton mess helped us par down our lists and ensure that we are targeting the correct people for each campaign.

Finally, on our last morning, we headed back to the Courtyard Restaurant, for a first class Full English breakfast.
