The UK is home to some of the world’s top hotels for foodies, with an abundance of top chefs in residence at venues across the country. That’s why the PoB Hotels group has decided to launch Seasoned To Perfection: a new series of extra-special culinary experiences, arriving in hotels across the Cotswolds, Sussex and Cumbria in 2024.
Set to launch this February, these dining experiences will see the hotel’s resident chef joined by two other chefs from PoB hotels in other locations. The events are designed to showcase the rich food culture of the British Isles, centred around local, seasonal produce and set in beautiful locations across the UK.
Seasoned To Perfection: PoB’s New Dinner Series
Farlam Hall Hotel & Restaurant, Cumbria
The series will kick off this February at charming country hotel Farlam Hall Hotel & Restaurant in Cumbria, famed for its beautiful landscape gardens and cosy bedrooms. Farlam Hall’s chef patron Hrishikesh Desai will be joined by The Torridon’s head chef Alex Henderson and Rockliffe Hall’s head chef Paul Nicholson for a six-course feast featuring produce from the bountiful Cumbrian countryside. Begin with Norfolk quail and Orkney scallops ahead of Liddlesdale Valley Venison and a Yorkshire rhubarb dessert.

Whatley Manor Hotel & Spa, the Cotswolds
Set amid 12 acres of pristine countryside, Whatley Manor (which recently became the UK’s first climate-positive hotel) is the epitome of Cotswolds charm. Home to two award-winning restaurants, including one with a Michelin star, it’s renowned for its excellent food offering, which is helmed by executive chef Ricki Weston. Book a stay this March to see Weston cooking alongside Douglas Balish from Grove of Narberth and Ollie Bridgewater from Gilpin Hotel & Lake House. You’ll be treated to a six-course meal featuring dishes like barbecued venison agnolotti, butter poached cod, and a standout Mayan red chocolate tart.
