Review on 1851 Restaurant at Peckforton Castle

Peckforton Castle stands majestically in an elevated position surrounded by the lovely Cheshire rolling countryside, a Grade I listed Victorian country house built in the style of a fairy tale medieval castle. It's a stunning venue that's equally suited to business, pleasure, romantic weddings and other celebrations. It has the added bonus of the fine dining 1851 Restaurant holder of three prestigious AA Rosettes, and the more informal 2019 Brasserie, located in the former scullery of the Castle, it showcases many of the kitchen's original features.

Talented chef Jason Hodnett mans the stoves, and he has created an innovative menu of exciting dishes alongside refined classical favourites, with local seasonal ingredients top of the agenda. Here is a kitchen that tempts with the likes of Nordic gravlax, ginger beer cure, cauliflower styles and almond before proceeding to a main course of pan-roasted pork loin, sweet potato, pak choi, sweetcorn, and Asian sauce. There are some interesting local and international cheeses served from the trolley with wafers and quince to round things off, unless you prefer the sweet delights of say, Piña Colada, pineapple delice, rum jelly and coconut ganache or a lemon tart, lemon curd, crisp sweet pastry and basil sorbet.

Should you decide to stay longer and enjoy the many attractions of the area, Peckforton Castle has 48 sensational individually designed guestrooms, all boasting original period features.
