“An amazing new dining room! The experience from start to finish is personal, thought provoking and the cooking is inspired. a true destination!” – so say fans of the revamp of the “well appointed” flagship dining room at this Dorchester Collection property, where a new contemporary look has brought the decor much more into line with the quality of chef Adam Smith’s cuisine. Reports acclaim both its “exceptional food and dining experience on a consistent basis”. You choose from a five-course menu for £145 per person.

Revamped and relaunched in September 2022 under this new stand-alone identity, the flagship dining room at the Dorchester Collection’s 240 acre estate near Virginia Water still sits at the heart of the property and is still overseen by acclaimed chef, Adam Smith. It has been an open secret for years that the former design of the dining room didn’t do justice to the setting, which the new space created by Martin Hulbert Design aims to put right. There’s a new locally focused menu too. According to the press release: “inspiration from the idyllic landscape, will be woven [geddit? Ed] into the menus, and the dishes, whilst refined, will be presented in playful and contemporary ways”. Over the years, Adam Smith’s cuisine has been steadily acclaimed here in our diners’ poll – perhaps even more so in future? Top Tip – in the lounges, Adam also oversees “lovely afternoon tea: traditional and reasonably priced too compared to some hotels in central London!”

The Dorchester Collection’s Ascot outpost, near Virginia Water, sits in 240 acres complete with polo pitches, a spa, a cheaper brasserie (the Barn) and the recently added ‘North Lodge’. In the mansion’s main dining room, Adam Smith’s high-quality cuisine is long on luxury, and wins solid ratings again this year.

For “elegance and luxury”, the Dorchester Collection’s spectacular mansion near Ascot, on a sizeable estate complete with polo pitches, certainly fits the bill. When it comes to the dining room and Adam Smith’s “first class cuisine”, “it’s maybe not the most creative, and would struggle to top the value-for-money rankings, but is certainly a safe bet for a fabulous meal”.

"Adam Smith has definitely added the wow factor to what was formerly the Restaurant Coworth Park. Dishes are more exciting & have more flare. Bread was not just a side issue but was a course in itself & something to be savoured . Subtle but stylish surroundings, dishes served by smiling staff nattily dressed."
