    Really enjoyed the food at Woodborough Hall. The desserts were good but the starter and main were far better. The location and setting are beautiful, service is great. Portions were really big, even my husband was struggling. I would really recommend the afternoon tea. There is plenty of cake, the variety of it is really good too. Really enjoyed having tea in the orangery, beautiful setting. They were also very welcoming of our super active 1 year old.

    Disappointing food this time. Maybe there was a different chef on today but it seemed as though the food had been warmed for hours. Hard yorkshire puddings, overcooked and fatty meat. The toilets could do with a lick of paint.

    Beautiful food in an equally beautiful historical hall. Excellent Value for money, the food just kept on coming. We thought it was two courses for £22 but it was three courses with canapés, coffee and petit fours also. We had a lovely day out and will return very soon. Great service and relaxed atmosphere.

    We thought Woodborough Hall was excellent, one of the best restaurants we have been to. The staff were very friendly and most helpful.

    Food excellent, however, a bit expense.

    Well worth the visit, both food and service were very good. I highly recomend visiting in the warmer months when you can sit out in the garden for drinks and canapés.

    My return to Woodborough Hall was better than i remembered! The beef fillet was superb and situated in a beautiful village. A fantastic dining experience with excellent service, many thanks.

We say…

Drive just ten minutes from Nottingham city centre on the A60 and you will enter the idyllic village of Woodborough and stumble upon Woodborough Hall; a lovingly restored, tranquil and charming country estate. This exquisite Grade II listed hall provides a wonderful atmosphere for an intimate dinner or special occasion.

Diners are able to choose to be seated in either of the two dining rooms at Woodborough Hall; the informal brasserie or the formal a la carte restaurant. Each room is styled slightly differently and offers diners a custom dining experience to suit their needs. The rooms are both decorated sympathetically to enhance the original features of the hall; full length pleated tablecloths, ornately carved chairs and mirrors and classic table settings.

Woodborough Hall pride themselves on their selection of the best suppliers and the traceability of their free range produce. They have chosen fabulous local produce makers including Goats Cheese from Skylark Hill in Cropwell Bishop; free range animal produce from local farms as close as Papplewick and they even travel, in person, to Rungis Market in Paris to buy the finest of herbs, spices and cheeses.

Celebrated Head Chef Des Sweeney, who has worked as a Chef for the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace, expertly creates varied and exciting menus that delight the taste buds. Seasonal dishes that currently grace the menu include Fillet of Scotch Beef with petit glazed onions, oyster mushrooms and potato rosti with a red wine jus, Beechmast Farm’s honey roast crisp pork belly with creamed potato and cider apple sauce and Smoked Haddock with buttered spinach, soft poached egg and French hollandaise.

The staff are incredibly well informed about the ingredients and the local suppliers that provided them and are very helpful when you require help deciding on a meal. The chef is also happy to cater for special dietary requirements and vegetarians are well catered for.

If you are looking for a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city dining, a trip to Woodborough Hall is just what the doctor would prescribe.
