New for 2021
Menus from 19 July onwards
Discover the new measures to make your stay the best this summer.
For breakfast the Market Kitchen menu is changing from 19 July onwards for most locations. There’ll be a selection of items fresh from the kitchen served to your table or you will be able to enjoy a full selection of hot breakfast items from the servery, where our chefs will serve you. Plus, guests can help themselves to continental choices too. We are confident that you’ll be impressed with the choice, flexibility and quality. Holme Lacy House hotel and Cricket St. Thomas hotel will continue with a full à la carte breakfast service.
Will buffet-style dining return?
It’s been a case of continually adapting since summer 2020. Some new measures have been really well-received, others less so. We’re continuing to review guest and team feedback to deliver the best possible experience while also following government guidelines. This means dining won’t necessarily return to pre-covid days.
Why do we have continue booking dining times in advance of our stay?
Pre-booking means we’re able to manage the flow of guests into the restaurants and help minimise the risk of infection. It has also improved service levels and the overall dining experience.
Why is buffet coming back at breakfast?
Since re-opening in 2021, listening to guests and team feedback we have reviewed the Market Kitchen breakfast menu and as a result it will change from 19 July onwards at most locations. Holme Lacy House hotel and Cricket St. Thomas hotel will continue with a full à la carte breakfast service. There’ll be a selection of items fresh from the kitchen served to your table or you will be able to enjoy a full selection of hot items from the servery, where our chefs will serve you. We are confident that you’ll be impressed with the choice, flexibility and quality. At dinner, it’s still full table service and the focus is on familiar pairings but always with the iconic roast of the day, plus desserts and cheese boards.
Is it the same buffet as pre-covid?
If anything, it’s better! We’re still working through the detail but confident that guests will be impressed with the choice, flexibility and quality. Menus will be published on the dining page.
Why can you offer buffet at breakfast and not dinner?
You’ve been talking, and we’re listening. Guests are telling us that they’re enjoying table service at dinner. It’s more relaxed and helps them feel safe so is something we’re keen to continue.
Why are Holme Lacy House and Cricket St. Thomas not offering an assisted breakfast menu?
Following recent investments in the restaurants and kitchens at both locations, these hotels have been able to provide an enhanced a la carte service at breakfast and at dinner. Listening to our guest and team feedback we have chosen to retain this service at these locations.
Will I have the same restaurant table for the duration of my stay?
Although pre-allocated seating was popular before the pandemic, a different table every night has proved to be equally attractive, so we still won’t be reserving specific tables. Plus, a change of seating means new dining neighbours, different team to engage with and the opportunity to enjoy another part of the restaurant.
What about Brasserie32 and the Pub & Kitchen?
The Brasserie32 restaurants at Nidd Hall, Thoresby Hall and Studley Castle and the Pub & Kitchen at Alvaston Hall continue to offer full à la carte breakfast and dinner as well as all-day menus with table service.
Why has the Pub & Kitchen not been open at Alvaston Hall?
Nationwide, the hospitality industry is facing a recruitment challenge. Sadly, we’ve been unable to open the Pub & Kitchen for every break because of team shortages. We’re working hard and quickly to resolve this.
What about table service, can I go to the bar and be served now?
It’s been a case of continually adapting since summer 2020. Some new measures have been really well-received, others less so. We believe team taking your drinks orders from the table has allowed for better service for all.
