Review on Peel's Restaurant at Hampton Manor
Peel's is the Michelin-starred fine dining restaurant set in the grounds of the luxury hotel Hampton Manor, a Grade II listed 19th century manor house in the pretty village of Hampton in Arden, just minutes from the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham airport and the M42. Once home to Sir Frederick Peel, son of the famous Prime Minister Robert Peel, the venue has undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment, creating a stylish venue with fifteen individually designed rooms, whilst retaining some of its original historical features.
The restaurant is situated in a former stable courtyard, with a wine room which still houses the original well pump on view through a glass screen. The contemporary styled dining room with its stunning glass roof and vista of the beautiful clock tower built in 1872, is a fitting venue for talented chef Ryan Swift's modern British cuisine.
The menu changes regularly in tune with seasons and there's a real dedication to local produce and rare breeds including middle white pork, long horn beef and rye lamb. Open your account with Anjou pigeon, parfait, English asparagus and hazelnuts or mackerel, avocado, mouli, bonito and soy. Main courses usher in cod and langoustine with sea vegetables, charred leek and Jersey Royals or brill, scallop, chorizo and gem lettuce. Desserts are artfully displayed in the shape of Yorkshire rhubarb, egg custard caramel and pine nut sablé or maybe lemon tart, meringue, crème fraîche ice-cream and peanut parfait.
To complement the exquisite dishes there is a carefully chosen wine list of over 150 references, with an expert sommelier on hand to guide you through the selections.
