Great Fosters to open two new restaurants

Great Fosters hotel in Egham, Surrey, is set to open two new restaurants later this month.

The former royal hunting lodge, which dates back to 1550 AD, will open the Estate Grill and the Tudor Room at Great Fosters on 20 April.

The Estate Grill will be less formal and serve a simple and seasonal menu, from salads through to grilled meats and fish, many cooked on a Josper grill.

The Tudor Room will offer a more sophisticated experience with Shane Hughes at the helm. Hughes previously worked at Ynyshir Hall, Le Poussin at Parkhill, and Whatley Manor in Wiltshire. Hughes has devised a series of tasting menus for the restaurant, with quail pie his signature dish. The 24-cover restaurant is set in a lavishly decorated dining room, with silk-lined walls and a 17th century tapestry on display.

The new eateries are the latest in a series of additions to the business, run by managing director Richard Young, who started his career at Great Fosters, going on to manage venues like Lords of the Manor and South Lodge hotel before returning to Great Fosters in 1998.

Great Fosters recently added a new conservatory, further bedrooms in the Cloisters and the Coach House - a state-of-the-art meeting facility with 11 bedrooms above.
