Hinderton Hall Estate
-

It should go without saying that a building steeped in history, oozing character through stone mullioned windows, parquet woodblock floors, an entrance to die for (or at least have your wedding photographs in front of) and adorned with golden chandeliers and fine satin sofas, should have food served that is, at the very least, complementary. Thankfully, the Pickled Walnut menus, bespoke each and every one, go beyond all that, making for the finest wedding, event or business seminar you’ll ever experience. Dating back to 1856, the Grade II Listed Hall is set within 51 glorious country house acres – the perfect backdrop for a Pimms on the lawn, an apéritif before sitting down to ginger and lime marinated trout fillet with caraway seeds, or just whiling away the hours with a fine filter coffee and Grand Marnier and orange cheesecake with raspberry coulis. Just a thought – and just one of many.
