The Dining Room at Mallory Court Hotel
“Top-notch dining in a romantic setting.” - AA Inspector
ROYAL LEAMINGTON SPA, WARWICKSHIRE
A grand Lutyens-style house set in 10 acres of lush, green grounds, Mallory Court is the epitome of a quintessentially English country house hotel. Staff are attentive without being intrusive, and everything feels grown-up – rather like the cooking. The menu makes good use of what’s available from the garden and locally. Start with pavé of Loch Duart salmon, horseradish and buttermilk dressing, dill oil and cucumber, and then salt chamber-aged Creedy Carver duck, spring roll of leg meat, beetroot, cinnamon and ginger sauce. Try forced Yorkshire rhubarb, baked cream, advocaat and stem ginger ice cream to finish.

About the area
The sparkle of sunlight on a gentle river as it meanders through beautiful countryside; the reflections of sailing boats on a lake; relaxing with a pint in the garden of an old English pub in a picturesque village; brightly coloured narrow boats making their way through a flight of lock gates; the imposing silhouette of an historic castle. These are the scenes that make Warwickshire a delight.
There may be few seriously high hills in this fertile plain, but it is an area full of attractive walking in rolling countryside, blessed with a fascinating history and wonderful places and buildings to visit. This is Shakespeare’s county, and the footprint of the famous Bard appears almost everywhere. He was born and brought up around the beautiful Warwickshire town of Stratford-upon-Avon, and many of his plays draw upon his own experiences in the area.
Warwickshire has a history that embraces the Civil War, castles and large country houses are scattered over the county. Warwick Castle is the home of the Earl of Warwick, Kenilworth Castle was a stronghold for lords and kings of England in the 11th and 12th centuries, and so the list goes on.
