Head Chef Karl Martin has joined the team. He has created a tasting menu that changes every day and is served Tuesday to Saturday nights. Please contact us for this week’s menu.
The dining room is in its pomp when set out for a party of eighteen, but it is equally atmospheric when laid out with tables of two or four. It has the feel of a grand medieval hall. In fact, it was built around the time of the Norman conquest, but do those small triangular windows suggest a more prosaic history? What you probably won’t see is the kitchen, where Head Chef Karl Martin is paring down the choice of stunning fresh local produce – there’s so much to choose from.
Karl produces a daily changing tasting menu for which he draws inspiration from local produce when he visits the Market and from his foraging expeditions in the Herefordshire countryside. Dinner is available on Tuesday to Saturday night only, between 6pm and 9pm. We will send you the menu in the week before your stay.
If you have any dietary requirements please let us know at least 24 hours before you dine, so that we can ensure it doesn’t impact on your dining experience. The restaurant is also open to non residents so we suggest you make your reservation as soon as possible to avoid disappointment (At least 24 hours before you dine).
Old Downton Lodge is now serving lunch between 12:30pm till 1:30pm from Thursday to Saturday. Advance booking only, so do plan ahead for a gastronomic delight. A sample lunch “Market Menu” can be found here – but note it is subject to change as it is dependent on local, seasonal produce
