Welcoming in all those who need rest and relaxation in one form of the other, Melville Hall acts a splendid hotel, spa and dining area.
Those looking to treat their bodies to some pampering in Sandown would be hard pressed to find somewhere better, and this also applies to those seeking something sumptuous for their stomachs.
Now accepting the tastecard, diners who call in advance can enjoy a wealth of wondrous dishes in the informal, laid back Bar at Melville Hall at an excellent price. With these savings in mind it almost seems obligatory to indulge in an extra course, be it one of the superb starters or a divine dessert.
A mere handful of the exquisite appetisers served feature the likes of the tantalising pork strips, enriched with Chinese five spice and a plum sauce, the irresistible Thai crab cakes, adorned with a sweet chilli sauce, and the heavenly breaded Brie wedges, paired with a cranberry sauce.
Following on from such exemplary taste bud enticers are an array of delightful main course options that encompass both British classics and international favourites. Particularly merit worthy meals include the delectable tempura battered vegetables, fried until golden and partnered with a trio of drips and homemade potato wedges, the succulent lamb rump, accompanied by garlic roasted new potatoes and a mustard sauce, and the scrumptious mushroom tagliatelle, complete with garlic bread and a cheese sauce.
A warm welcome is extended to one and all who visit Melville Hall, regardless of whether they plan to stay the night, soak themselves in the pools or simply satisfy their ravenous appetite at the Bar.
