Stanbrook Abbey Hotel in Worcestershire is celebrating the launch of its new restaurant, Sister Charlotte’s.
The iconic hotel, which is famous for being the former home to a closed order of Benedictine Nuns, has named its new eatery Sister Charlotte’s after its extensive history.
Martin Page, general manager at the 56-bed hotel is hoping the new restaurant will prove to be a hit with both guests and locals, and build a strong loyal following.
He said: “I’m looking forward to really creating a special offering here in Worcestershire where people enjoy something new and different that they cannot find anywhere else in the region.”
Sister Charlotte’s design will be peppered with design nods to its history, while the food will be contemporary and make use of the produce available on its doorstep.
Some stand-out dishes on the menu include the Snodsbury goats cheese, a Chantilly de chevre cheesecake, three-way beetroot and local herbs, which is named after the Worcestershire Village of Upton Snodsbury.
There is also the Burford brown hens egg, a deep fried egg, crisp chorizo and mushroom crunch, sourced from the local village.
The restaurant will be open for dinner in the evenings and afternoon tea in during the latter part of the day.
Page added: “We are really excited to open the doors to some of our local friends to show what we have here at Stanbrook Abbey Hotel. The building itself is a local landmark, and somewhere local people hold dear in their hearts.”
