Rooted in the fine local produce of the region, using the finest locally sourced, humanely and where possible, organically produced ingredients, the fine dining offering here at Palé Hall is seasonal and fresh, sharing influences from across the globe but based upon the great culinary traditions of Britain and Continental Europe.
We are honoured to have the renowned Michael Caines as our culinary mentor and adviser. He believes that great chefs must be able to transform what is plentiful and in season into something creative, imaginative, beautiful and above all delicious. Such foods, naturally, taste of the land from which they are born. He expects all his chefs to create local and meaningful relationships with farmers, growers, fishermen, food producers and suppliers. We are blessed with some of the best in Britain right on our doorstep.
Working together, Michael and our Head Chef have developed a fine dining menu to tantalize. With Michael’s own dishes forming its foundation each element is a feast for the senses.
With three different dining rooms we can offer private dining to suit most occasions. You can sit and plan your menu with our chef, pick your wines with our sommelier and allow our team to make that special occasion perfect.
The Library is suited for the small and intimate occasion. Seating from two to ten, renovated and decorated by Angela herself, rich stencils, book lined walls and an open fire make this a warm and welcoming space.
Venice is a room transformed from the original kitchen, complete with the original range but now an elegant room with a theatrical Venetian theme. This room can seat up to eighteen as a private dining space. With its crystal chandeliers, Venetian mirrors and antique copper glowing, it’s a magical room.
The Henry Robertson Dining Room can be booked for larger private functions and seats forty comfortably in banquet style. With its ornate plaster ceilings, grand fireplace and carved buffet, this room was designed to impress and is the perfect place for a wedding buffet, a corporate lunch, or a large family gathering.
We politely request that children under the age of 12 have finished dining in the dining rooms by 8.30pm. For later family parties with younger children we would be delighted to provide a private dining area, subject to available space. Alternatively we can provide a babysitting service, bookable in advance at £10 per hour (minimum two hours).
