As a receptionist here at The Beech Hill Hotel and a lover of food and wine, I was lucky enough to experience the first of our Gourmet evenings from a guest perspective with my parents who were staying at the time (not planned honest!!).
The evening started with an enjoyable champagne and canapé reception in the lounge area before we moved through to the restaurant.
Once we are all seated, the wine sommelier introduced himself and explained about the wines that were to compliment each course. Following this, we had a 5 course meal with a different glass of wine with each course to enhance the different tastes. Each wine and course was served with information from the sommelier, so it gave me an idea of what kind of wine to order when I dine in the future, as I am a novice to this! I tend not to drink red wine, but the two red wines served with the courses were not too heavy, all were easy to drink with beautiful flavours.
The food was mouth watering and the service was exceptional. Each course was well presented and thought out and I loved every single mouth full!
After the meal myself and the other guests retired to the lounge area. I had a chance to talk to some of the other residents in the hotel, all of whom stated what a very relaxing and enjoyable evening it had been and many can’t wait to return to the next one on 30 September 2011.

I would thoroughly recommend it!
