Stanbrook Abbey Hotel in Worcester has opened a new restaurant, The Refectory Dining Room & Terrace, and added 15 bedrooms as part of an ongoing investment programme by owner/operator Hand Picked Hotels.
The Grade II listed abbey now offers a restaurant on the ground floor in what was the original nun’s cafeteria. The design blends heritage features including hand-carved wood panelling and stone arched windows, with modern furnishings such as circular booths, textured walls, contemporary lighting, framed bespoke photographs from the local area and bi-fold doors opening onto a terrace.
The menu offers modern British cuisine from head chef David Humphreys and features dishes influenced by seasonality and provenance using locally sourced produce wherever possible.
The new bedrooms have taken the hotel from 55 to 70 rooms.
