Five-star hotel The Grove has officially reopened the doors of the newly refurbished The Glasshouse restaurant.

Situated at the heart of the luxury hotel, the newly renovated restaurant offers an experience inspired by food-hall style dining. For a set price, diners can sample a variety of dishes celebrating international flavours, fresh produce and the talents of a team of specialist chefs.

Executive Head Chef Stephen Wheeler launched The Glasshouse when the hotel opened 15 years ago. Now, having spent years overseas gaining international experience, he has returned to helm The Glasshouse.

Having lived in Asia for several years, leading some of the best restaurants including Six Senses Laamu, Wheeler has drawn upon his experience of the region’s focus on fresh, seasonal produce to introduce a range of new dishes and cooking techniques to provide diners at The Glasshouse with a huge range of options. Guests can watch the chefs in action at the live cooking stations, and the range of food includes meat and fish options as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Wheeler said: “It brings me great pleasure to oversee the relaunch of The Glasshouse, and we couldn’t be more excited to showcase this new, innovative dining experience to guests. We’ve introduced so many new cooking stations and methods, as it was crucial to us that we provide guests with a fantastic range of options at a superior quality. It’s an interactive and fun way of eating.”

Within the newly refurbished The Glasshouse is the new The Glasshouse Bar, with views overlooking the garden terrace. The bar offers a wide source of carefully sourced spirits, beers and wines, with the intention of operating a zero-waste policy wherever possible. The drinks menu features a diverse range of cocktails usually locally sourced ingredients, including those found in The Grove’s Walled Garden.

The Glasshouse is open for breakfast (7am - 10.30am), lunch (12.30pm - 2pm) and dinner (6pm - 9.30pm), as well as afternoon tea in The Glasshouse Bar (1.30pm - 4.30pm). Lunch starts at £42 per person, with dinner from £49 per person.
