One of the UK’s finest chefs with an extensive career working within many of the country’s most prominent Michelin starred hotel restaurants has arrived at Hipping Hall.
Peter Howarth joins the Lancashire property as head chef and has unveiled his first collection of menus for the restaurant with rooms.
He is seeking to combine the principles of ‘purity, simplicity and freshness’ to the dishes he creates, using local and seasonal ingredients to deliver an exceptional dining experience fuelled by flavour.
The menus echo Howarth’s humble and understated nature and are inspired by the fields, farms, hedgerows and coastline that surround the restaurant with rooms.
He said: “I have gained huge amounts of inspiration from the surrounding three counties throughout my career, and it’s brilliant to now be working more closely with local artisans and continuing to raise the profile of the produce available here.”
Howarth will be joined in the kitchen by two of his former sous chefs from The Devonshire Arms.
Hipping Hall boasts 15 rooms split across the main house, the cottage and the recently renovated stables.
The five bedrooms in the stables, as well as the adjacent lounge and dining room, will be available to book exclusively from 2022, including an exquisite dinner hosted by Howarth and his team.
