Sat amidst acres of plush greenery in the 18th century mansion that is Oulton Hall, the Calverley Grill offers all who enter a sumptuous meal in a relaxing atmosphere.
Be they guests at the hotel or merely looking to stop by for some of the exquisite fare, all are given a warm welcome at the restaurant, where tastecard members are able to enjoy all of the dishes served at a fantastic discount when they call in advance with their card.
Everything created in the kitchen is made using only the best in locally sourced and seasonal ingredients, ensuring a certain freshness and a quality that makes for a mouth-watering feast. This begins with the delightful starters, where a divine smoked haddock and saffron soup is wonderfully contrasted by the scrumptious pan-fried wood pigeon, and continues through to the enchanting courses to follow.
Next up are the magnificent mains, which include such palate pleasing options as the glorious cider cream sauce adorned poached sea trout, served with burnt apple puree, lovage, samphire and layered potatoes, and the delectable seared calves liver, which comes complete with smoked bacon and a horseradish mash. All of which is accompanied by a range of succulent steaks that are ideal for those with a particularly carnivorous appetite, and an enticing vegetarian alternative in the sweet potato and smoked tofu gratin complemented wild mushroom pithivier.
Concluding the dining experience are the divine desserts, which contain the likes of a rich dark chocolate truffon and a delicious chocolate and coffee caramel before moving over and dipping into some of the magnificent savings at the on-site bar, ensuring a marvellous time is had by all at Calverley Grill at Oulton Hall.
