Exquisite Evenings

Tasting menu experience with wine flight

Tasting Menu Experience

The Earl & Countess of Derby invite you to experience the gastronomic delights of their executive chef Paul Macnish.  This is a unique opportunity to experience fine dining of the highest quality within an authentic stately home.

Enjoy a tasting menu with paired wines carefully selected by the sommelier from Boutinot wines to accompany each dish.  During the evening the sommelier will join guests in our State Dining Room to talk you through each of the wines.

We do limit the number of places at our Exquisite Evenings so we would recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

For those who would like to extend the experience further we have 15 bedrooms which have received 5* Gold award from Visit Britain.  Each room has been individually designed by The Countess of Derby herself and are immaculately maintained to a high standard by our housekeeping team. Expect country house chic, immaculately high standards and heritage meets updated luxury. Prices start from £355 for an Executive bedroom with Tasting Menu and wine flight based on two sharing. To talk to one of our team about reserving a bedroom please call 0151 489 4827.
