A new restaurant has been unveiled at Tewkesbury Park, marking the final piece in the puzzle of a £10m, four-year redevelopment at the hotel on the edge of the Cotswolds.
Mint is the new ‘destination restaurant’ at the family-run hotel which has been designed ADS Design, who spearheaded the creation of a fresh and bright new décor.
Weaving in verdant undertones of limes, peppermints and greens, Mint boasts banquettes, chairs and feasting tables to encourage sociability, while a glass and antique brass balustrade overlooks the restaurant.
Clusters of fresh potted herbs peppered around the restaurant offer another nod to the restaurant’s name.
A aluminium-topped sharing table will double up as a breakfast bar.
The food menu is directed by head chef Anuj Thakur, and will change eight times a year, but carrying a ‘mint’ theme throughout, featuring the season’s relevant herb, from ‘Winter Mint’ featuring mint and sage, to ‘Early Summer Mint’ with mint and lavender.
Menus will be presented to guests on thick cards, clipped with antique brass bulldog clips on hand-made wooden boards that have been crafted from old wooden wine crates by a local cabinet maker.
Commenting, Patrick Jones, general manager, said; “We’re absolutely thrilled with the final results. The restaurant brings a fresh, yet trendy area that harmonises perfectly with the other spaces in the hotel. With the launch of Mint, we’re confident it will put Tewkesbury on the epicurean map!”
Tewkesbury Park recently completed an extensive four-year renovation costing nearly £10m, with the addition of nine suites, two new spa rooms, two meeting rooms, an orangery, a cocktail lounge and the Cotswolds suite, an events suite – complete with a wood-fired pizza oven and terrace.
All other communal areas and leisure facilities have also been completely refurbished.
The hotel was acquired by Claire McIntosh, her mum and brother in 2014.
