With the days shortening and the nights’ drawing in, our minds wander to food. Finding dishes to savour and bring us comfort and warmth during the winter time are firmly on the agenda at Sopwell House. In line with the seasons changing a new menu has arrived at the Brasserie and the Restaurant.
In the Brasserie, for something to warm you from the inside out, opt for the Dingley Dell Ham Hock & Chorizo Croquette; or the piping-hot Welsh Lamb Shepherd’s Pie. Alternatively, the Whole Sea Bass or Roast Corn Fed Chicken Breast are the dishes to order this season. Not forgetting the desserts, where a Chocolate & Raspberry Delice goes down a treat.
The Restaurant’s winter menu offers guests a delicious portion of Pork belly served with Lobster, popcorn and fennel to start or a beautiful dish of Mackerel, smoked beetroot and red cabbage. For the main there is the Lamb with spiced lentils, salsify, hispi cabbage and toasted barley to enjoy; or the Cod with almond, celeriac and pickled blueberry. But why stop there when you can also indulge in a deconstructed Walnut cake with green apple, calvados and grape?
