Goldstone Hall NEW lunch menu
From Monday 6th May a brand new and attractively priced menu will feature produce from the garden and has been created by Head Chef Andrew McGeorge. This will be the ultimate “Ladies that Lunch” menu in the region.
The Goldstone Garden has an “exemplary” kitchen garden with raised beds, herb walk and garden of rare and unusual edible plants from around the globe including the Andes and Himalayas. We have introduced Stevia rebaudiana the natural low calorie sweetener to menus and salads will feature Nasturtium, Red Orach and our own grown lettuce . The garden is open under the National Garden Scheme (NGS).
Chef, Andrew McGeorge joins Goldstone to lead the Brigade and brings a massive experience of top quality cooking from the Lake District where he has held AA, Michelin and Good Food Guide accolades for many years.
“ I am excited about joining Goldstone which has an enviable reputation but is also massively ambitious in wanting to develop as a centre of both culinary excellence and a beacon for using the freshest of own grown and local. Butter made on a farm 5 minutes away and new potatoes dug in the morning from our garden is only the start of our drive to bring great flavour screaming off the plate. As a proud Northerner while having great respect for Heston I am not into fads and faff. I believe in flavour, quality and value.”
The Garden menu will be available Monday to Friday, midday to 2pm booking is not essential and all guests will be very welcome to wander around the garden. Head Gardener Nick Huxley will be around and willing to offer some advice to any gardening problem. The first month’s menu will feature Asparagus and Duck eggs from Ashley, Butter from Wistanswick, our own sorrels and salad leaves, bacon cured in Market Drayton and daily fresh baked breads.
Lunch will be served in the Orangery or on warm days outside on the Terrace and in the Oak framed Pavilion which overlook the walled garden. During May the sensational flowering cherry tree will be a stunning centrepiece to the flower garden.

Barbeque Reaches New Heights
Ever since Goldstone installed it’s rather impressive charcoal hog roaster that enables our chefs to spit roast an entire pig, lamb or haunch of venison over hot coals, the demand for barbeques has really taken off.
The sense of theatre combined with the authentic taste of properly roasted meat has made it a firm favourite with event organisers and wedding planners.
Now our new barbeque area takes that sense of theatre to new heights – designed to perfectly complement Goldstone’s eclectic mix of architectural styles, it provides (yet another) wonderful backdrop for photographs, as well as a sheltered area for your barbeque – should the weather prove to be the only aspect of your event that doesn’t exceed your expectations!
