Related tags: Culinary art, Hotel

Chewton Glen, the five-red star luxury hotel in Hampshire, is to open an informal restaurant as part of its The Kitchen development, which will also include a cookery school with TV chef James Martin.

The 40-seat restaurant is set to open in March, and will feature a wood-fired pizza oven, with an informal lounge, chef’s table for private dining, and an outside seating area.

The menu –to be revealed fully in the next couple of weeks – will also feature ‘superfood salads’, lobster and chips, and ‘gourmet’ burgers.

The space will form part of the hotel’s new wider cookery school, and will benefit from its design, focused on glass panelling and open windows and doors, created to bring a light, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

The informal operation will be another restaurant for Chewton Glen, which already runs the higher-end option, The Dining Room.

The cookery school itself, also set for a March opening, has been created in association with TV chef and Chewton Glen alumnus James Martin, and will be headed up by chef tutor Rob Cottam. It will have 12 professionally-equipped cooking stations, with a view over the kitchen garden, which offers a year-round supply of herbs and vegetables established by estate manager Darren Venables.  

Martin and Cottam will create a timetable of courses and demonstrations suitable for all skills and abilities. Visiting chefs also set to feature include Michelin-starred Tom Kerridge, Richard Corrigan, Atul Kochhar, and Dan Doherty.

Part of the Relais & Chateaux collection, Chewton Glen has 70 bedrooms, including 12 ‘treehouse’ suites, a golf course, croquet lawn, tennis courts and spa.
