    Blind Tasting Menu – first Wednesday of every month

    Are you a bit of a foodie, do you like to try new taste sensations?  The Grand Hotel is hosting a special ‘Blind Taste’ menu on the first Wednesday of every month, where you can experience a 3 course dinner for just £20 in our award winning AA Rosette Restaurant 1881.

    The idea of a blind taste ‘Guinea Pig Night’ is that each dish is a surprise until it’s served and our waiter describes the dish to you. You may receive the same or a di-erent starter, main and dessert from your dining companions.  Blind tasting menus enable our chef to be very creative and come up with tastes and texture surprises ensuring a truly memorable experience. Whilst giving you an opportunity to experience something new and expand your foodie knowledge.  Food allergies cannot be catered for.
