You would expect the food at Hallmark Hotel Flitwick Manor to be rather special. It has form, after all. Centuries of form. Since the 17th century it has been at the heart of a beautiful estate where countless generations of the Rhodes, Dells and Brooks families have dined in style. It has hosted family dinners, balls and wedding banquets.
Now, in its 21st century incarnation as a boutique country house hotel, it continues this fine tradition. The fabulous dining room, with its wood paneling, candlelight and views across the terrace and gardens, is the splendid stage for first-rate cuisine that attracts both guests and locals – always a marker of consistent quality.
Using fine fresh seasonal ingredients our talented kitchen produces a menu mixing British and European dishes that has earned two AA Rosettes. We’re not surprised. The likes of a goats cheese Waldorf salad, pan-fried salmon with almonds and sea bream with samphire and lobster cream speak for themselves. As does the summer berry crumble and Sambuca pannacotta. It’s relaxed but seriously good dining.
We should also give honourable mention to our acclaimed afternoon high tea. The mix of sandwiches, bakes, homemade scones with clotted cream and jam, go particularly well with our soft deep sofas next to the lounge’s roaring fire. Feel free to snooze!
