Tewkesbury Park Hotel to celebrate Cheltenham Festival with limited-time menu

A luxury Cotswold hotel is preparing to welcome racegoers during Cheltenham Festival with an exclusive, limited-time menu in their recently revamped ‘Mint’ restaurant.

Georgian manor house hotel, Tewkesbury Park, will be cooking up delicious dishes from 6-10pm daily during Cheltenham Festival, with its special race week menu offering plenty of enticing choice for visiting guests.

Available from Monday 9th March – Friday 13th March, the new dishes have been lovingly developed by Mint’s head chef, Anuj Thakur, and his talented team to take full advantage of the finest seasonal ingredients available from local producers. Examples of some of the delicious offerings include:

  • Pan-fried sea bass with ratatouille vegetables, lemon confit potatoes, curly kale and red pepper emulsion
  • Wild mushroom tortellini with mascarpone cream sauce, sun-blushed tomatoes, truffle paste and watercress leaves
  • 8oz Herefordshire beef pave steak with vine tomatoes, portobello mushroom, confit onion and triple-cooked chips with peppercorn, béarnaise or red wine sauce

Delectable desserts range from spiced roast pineapple with coconut sorbet, honey nut and seed muesli, to passion fruit curd and meringue tart, and warming sticky toffee pudding with brandy snap and honeycomb ice cream.

Speaking of the new menu, Anuj said: “Cheltenham Festival is an extraordinary event, which certainly creates an exciting buzz around town every year. With the racecourse just a short drive away, we’re in a prime location to welcome racegoers and so wanted to create a special menu that would further enhance our visitors’ Cotswold experience. From locally sourced meats to British-caught fish and an endless amount of homegrown vegetables, there’s something to tickle every taste bud and we’re excited for guests to try the race week dishes before we transition into our new Spring menu, which will take over mid-March”.

To further get into the spirit of the Festival, Tewkesbury Park will be streaming all of the action from the racecourse in No. 19 Cafe, perfect for guests wanting to enjoy the races without leaving the warmth and comfort of the hotel.

The family-owned hotel, golf and health club, which is set amongst 164 acres of parkland on the site of the 1471 Battle of Tewkesbury.  Offering panoramic views of the Cotswolds, the Severn Valley, the Welsh Mountains and the Malvern Hills, Tewkesbury Park is the ideal location for any country stay.
