26th October – 3rd November 2019


Rutland Food and Drink Week is almost upon us.  This annual celebration of the great and good that our little county has to offer is a must for epicureans near and far.

We may be Britain’s smallest county but what we lack in size, we make up for in local produce to bring to the proverbial table.  Rutland is known as the ‘county of good taste’ for good reason, we certainly have more than our fair share of high-quality eating and drinking establishments, so it seems only right that we’d make an event of it.

Along with several other excellent restaurants in the county we’re joining Rutland Food Week Fixed Menu Event.  We’ll be celebrating Rutland’s excellent food, reflecting the very best of our county’s produce. This is a chance to also recognise the talented, hardworking people who grow, source, provide and prepare the food our county is fast becoming famous for.  From Monday 28th October – Friday 1st November we’ll be offering two courses for £31.50, you can add a third course for £8.50 and coffee and chocolates for £5.00.

Hambleton Hall is unique amongst its fine dining peers; we have the longest retained Michelin Star in the UK. Originally awarded in 1982, head chef Aaron Patterson’s imaginative menu of sophisticated seasonal food has secured it for 37 consecutive years.  An accolade, chef and team we’re extremely proud of.

Our set menu will reflect Aaron’s commitment to serving locally sourced produce.  With an abundance of exciting food now in season you can, as ever, expect something magnificent. You can see the full menu here.

Throughout the week you can also expect events throughout Oakham, Uppingham and the surrounding villages and country pubs.  There’ll be food and drink stalls celebrating local producers in the castle grounds in Oakham, look out for Hambleton Bakery’s stall, as well as markets, cookery displays, Uppingham Beer Festival and a coffee school too. The week concludes with the Discover Rutland Annual Ball where Hambleton Bakery will be providing bread for the feast.

We look forward to welcoming you during Rutland Food Week.
