Dining and Bars

Chef Paul Marshall


Brassiere 1

Brasserie1 is an informal, contemporary recent addition to this grand Victorian hotel. Brasserie1 and the adjoining Bar have French windows which open out onto a terrace at the front of the hotel with views of the hotel's gardens and the Yorkshire Moors beyond. Decorated in a pleasing mix of modern and traditional design with the benefit of a light bright environment and on winter evenings an open fire adding to the ambience. The menu combines simplicity with excellent locally sourced ingredients and offers a relatively narrow selection to ensure a consistently high standard with the choice changing regularly to maximise the use of produce appropriate to each season.

Very disappointed.

11/07/2018 wildthingwarrington, Warrington

Fabulous setting and location. We were given a very small room with the double bed pushed up to the wall at one side and with less than 18" at the other side. We complained after the first night and w... more

Dear Guest I am really sorry to hear that your stay was not up to expectations, I will be looking into all the points you have raised. If reference to low graded rooms, this is not such a category. The voucher bought buy yourself, entitles you to a standard room to which you was allocate. Upgraded rooms are available at an additional cost, however the Duty Manager on the day offered you a complimentary upgrade to an executive rooms to which you accepted. Kind Regards Guests Relations Manager
