So today’s topic isn’t beauty or hair (okay maybe a little of fashion :p) today is primarily about family, fine food and a lovely day out.
So my lovely pops decided to treat his gillies to the best meal he has ever had at Winteringham fields.
Something you should know…my dad is a chef by trade so anything he can cook, he won’t eat out…so the fact that he was hyping this place up is a big deal.
He went two years ago with Kate( his lovely wife) this was when it had two Michelin stars. However when the chef moved on the stars went with him. It takes time to get them stars, but believe me, the food is star quality and they will get one this year easy! The chef in charge now is called Colin Mcgurrin and we met his protégé Ryan Cook and his team, you could feel his passion for cooking and also you genuinely could feel his love for his main man Colin.
Anyway Winteringham Fields is a great place for a nice occasion. Dad found it on groupon for £180 for 4 people and that includes a 6 course taster menu. You can also do a wine tasting which is one glass per course to compliment the dish which was only £35 shock! (that is per person but we aren’t massive drinkers so we just tried a bit of pops)
I suggest you guys get there Asap because when the Michelin star 🌟 is back the prices will inflate. It is Fantastic! The food, the service, everything is top notch. If you want to sample some of the finer life now is your chance…I mean where else will you get a puffy for your bag( yep my bag had a seat of its own)

6 courses of heaven
I’m going to apologise now, I am no chef nor am I a master of food. I see it, I eat it (that’s as far as my knowledge goes) the food was amazing and my descriptions will be off so I will tell you basically what it is but there is nothing basic about any of these dishes.
The appetiser- we had this appetiser in the lounge (see below)
(stunning with a cosy atmosphere )
Okay I am not a fan of the mushrooms and we were given a mushroom Parmazan soup and some meringue filled with truffle and a lemon gell on top. I tried the soup and didn’t like it so even though I didn’t say a word they made me a pumpkin soup instead and kept all mushrooms off my dishes throughout ( now that is great service)
I failed to get a picture of this one, sorry hunger won.
We went into the main dining area for this (no picture as people were eating and that would just be rude)
Omg this was so yummy 😋 bloody Mary jelly and a prawn and coriander topping.
This was so good. This dish consisted of an egg that has the texture of jelly as it was cooked for 2.5 hours at 61 degrees to give it a bright colour and enhanced taste. It had Iberian ham and something that resembled a crispy parsnip (basically a fancy breakfast 🍳)
I’m sorry I couldn’t resist digging in 🙂
This course was ground beef with caviar and beef fat around it. This was delicious, it came with some fine crispy crispy bread (otherwise known as toast). It was a beautiful spread but could not eat it alone as it’s a powerful dish, full of flavours.
Course four :
This was seabass with a crispy skin. It flaked off, there was more to it than that.. either way this was one of the top three out of 6 dishes.
This dish was quail breast, a potato and bacon square, a creamy vegetable side with a light dribble of jus. This was my second favourite dish.
This dish was rated no.1 in my book. It was an amaretto cheesecake with a pear swirl and my favourite a pear and grappa sorbet.
Then we finished off with some lattes in the lounge. And they gave us more food 😮 some macaroons, truffles, and caramel brittle.
Hope you guys enjoyed this post,
