Since we last visited Moor Hall, chef Mark Birchall and his team have earned the restaurant a Michelin star. Mark’s dishes are always elegant, vibrant and demonstrate acute attention to detail.
Making use of the extensive onsite gardens and glasshouses, the food always has a freshness and lightness of touch that allows flavours to shine with balance and clarity. Ornate and artful presentation means the food may look delicate, but it always packs a punch and is cleverly textured to enhance enjoyment.
A meal at Moor Hall starts with drinks and snacks of the historical parts of the wonderful 16th century manor house. After having had time to settle, diners are led past ornately carved antique wood panelling into the contemporary dining room with its top of the range open kitchen and glass panelling with picturesque lakeside views.
