Dining at The Dormy
Prepared with passion, served with flair.
Dormy House has long been a landmark destination for foodies and with Head Chef Paul Napper in charge of the kitchen we are cooking-up a real culinary storm in the Cotswolds. Working with Consultant Chef John Wood (whose CV glitters with a constellation of Michelin stars) Paul has developed two distinct dining experiences with two mouth-watering menus.
In The Garden Room restaurant we have set out to prove that fine dining doesn’t have to be too fussy or too formal. Instead, expect a menu that cleverly reworks country classics for a more modern palate and an atmosphere that’s both relaxed and attentive. A wall-to-ceiling glass window floods The Garden Room with light, allowing outdoor dining in summer and providing a cosy retreat in winter. The menu also reflects the changing seasons by making the most out of local ingredients when they are at their very best.
The Potting Shed restaurant is just about as relaxed as great grub can get. Set around a large oak bar, it’s the perfect place to unwind at the end of the day or enjoy a lazy Sunday brunch of Bangers Beans & Bacon. The menu champions the best of British cooking, so for Starters think Soup and Welsh Rarebit, for Mains think Pies and Pork Belly, and for Pudding (we don’t ‘do’ Desserts in The Potting Shed) think Rhubarb Crumble and Bakewell Tart. Cooking doesn’t get more unpretentious than this!
The Wine List Fabulous food deserves a fabulous wine list and with the help of Corney & Barrow (who hold two Royal Warrants) we have chosen a selection of wines that’s hard to beat. We thought that if it’s good enough for the Queen and Prince Charles, it’s just about good enough for our guests.
