The Gatehouse at the Lord Crewe Arms is an a fifteenth century gatehouse transformed into a private dining room, demonstration kitchen and events space. The most beautiful haven for foodies, there's a full events diary of Supper Clubs, Lunch & Demos, Summer picnics and Garden BBQs.
If you're big foodies like us, you'll love Supper Club at the Gatehouse as it gives you the rare opportunity to chat to the Chef and maybe pick up a few tips along the way!
Once all the guests had arrived and we'd enjoyed a couple of glasses of fizz it was time to make our way to the table ready to enjoy our evening of food. We were welcomed into the most beautiful room with a long wooden table covered in wild heather, plush leather chairs and a stunning stone fireplace.
One of the things we enjoyed most about the Supper Club at the Gatehouse was the opportunity to meet new people. Introductions were quickly made and our evening was filled with happy chat, wonderful stories and, of course, plenty of food recommendations. Safe to say our diary is now full to the brim with loads of new ideas of places across the region to explore.
We were excited to find we'd each been left a menu for the night and happily studied it as our wine glasses were filled. With the choice of white or red, our glasses were never left empty and we couldn't believe how many glasses were included with our meal!
First course arrived, Venison Tartar and Pete's beets, it was a lovely light start to our meal and a great indication of what was to come! I love beetroot and it was the perfect flavour to compliment the venison.
The real talking point of the meal was the next course, Pigeon Breast with Spatzle. After one mouthful we were all commenting how delicious the dish was, speculating where the pigeon had come from and desperately trying to eat it as slowly as possible to savour every last mouthful.
We decided to finish our night with coffee in the lounge area with our lovely new friends. We shared comfy sofas and talked about our delicious meal until we were struggling to keep our eyes open. That delicious food had finished us off and we all happily said our goodbyes more than ready for bed and delicious dreams of pastry and game!
Game Night at the Gatehouse was everything that we'd hoped and more. We had a fantastic night with new friends, enjoyed delicious food and top quality service in the most beautiful surroundings. I honestly couldn't recommend the Supper Club at the Lord Crewe Arms enough, it's only a matter of time before we book ourselves in again because we've been talking about it ever since!
Tickets to Game Night cost a very reasonable £45.00 per person which included welcome drinks, nibbles, a four course meal with wine and tea and coffee. To see what is coming up next and book your place at the Gatehouse check out their events diary here.
We were lucky guests of the Gatehouse and were treated to a complimentary meal. All opinions are our own.
