Fine dining, and a commitment to quality and excellence, sits at the heart of what we do.

Palé Hall Head Chef Gareth StevensonWe have been very fortunate in the appointment of Gareth Stevenson as our Head Chef. Gareth was already experienced, capable and accomplished when he joined us, but since taking the helm at Palé Hall he has truly established his credentials as a rising star. Like all great chefs Gareth’s food has evolved to become an expression of his own unique vision, creativity and skill, consistently winning praise and acclaim from our guests and reviewers alike. The exquisite creations that emerge from his kitchen form the culinary foundations of the Palé Hall experience.

Building relationships with local farmers, growers, fishermen, food producers and suppliers means that the menus at Palé Hall allow you to discover some of the finest food from our region, always fresh, seasonal, naturally delicious and, of course, responsibly, humanely and organically produced.
