A return visit that lived up to our expectations

Following our wedding at Horton Grange six years ago we returned for our anniversary and again stayed in the Alnwick room, the Bridal suite. Along with other areas of the building the room had been tastefully redecorated while maintaining a welcoming ambience. We had a lovely cream tea in the afternoon and a very enjoyable meal in the evening. Throughout our stay the staff were friendly and extremely professional. Without doubt we would like to return again and would highly recommend Horton Grange Country House.
Afternoon Tea Disappointment

Horton Grange is a lovely venue for afternoon tea. I joined friends in the sitting room yesterday where we sat at a fabulous table next to the open fire and enjoyed a lovely, long catch up. The staff were very pleasant, most attentive and didn't rush us. Talking so much, the refills of tea and coffee across the afternoon were most welcome! The big disappointment however for me was the food. It was not good value at £19.50 for 4 finger sandwiches, 1 very dry cheese scone and a very small fruit salad. The hotel was informed well in advance that I had special dietary requirements and should have either tried harder in terms of their provision or reduced the price if that was the best they could come up with. Not impressed particularly in comparison with what other hotels have provided in the past, given the same dietary brief. That said, the 'normal' afternoon tea did look good and apparently taste very nice.

Thank you Horton Grange for providing such a beautiful location, excellent service and delicious food for our wedding. We had the best day from beginning to end. Emma was so helpful from the start making sure everything was planned to perfection. Chris looked after us all on the day. We didn’t want it to end. I would recommend Horton Grange as a wedding venue for style, comfort, professionalism, great food, beautiful surroundings, exclusivity and a perfect day. Wouldn’t change a thing.

We decided to treat ourselves to afternoon tea at a very nice hotel outside Newcastle.I opted for the gentleman tea and was spoilt with delicious chefs own steak pie and scotch egg with a onion relish. There was the usual cakes that you expect and trifle washed down with prosecco. The better half had the normal tea with scones cream and jam which was also excellent. Claudio and the staff were very friendly and made us very welcome.

We turned up a bit early as our lunch wasn’t booked in until 12 noon. So me and hubby had a nose about the different rooms and naturally I took some photos. We had coffee to start with and even though we were the only ones there, nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were tending to all the last minute tidying up. We chose starters and mains. I had a roasted baby beetroot salad with quails egg and my hubby had a smoked mackerel parfait with toast and a salad garnish. I have to say these were fairly small portions and I realised then that this was fine dining. In that case you have to slow down and taste every morsel as you’re always in for a surprise with the tastes. The beetroot were all different colours and tasted like they had been marinated in sparkling wine which made the flavours dance around in your mouth. The quails egg was cooked to perfection. My hubby’s smoked mackerel parfait he said, didn’t taste like the fish you buy from a supermarket counter, it was like they smoked it themselves. Really delicious. We both chose roast belly of pork for our mains. This arrived with good timing after we digested our starter. The warm plates were served to us with a proud looking good sized piece of belly pork which sat on a bed of buttery creamed potato, very lovely, with a sauce or jus draped over the pork. It was accompanied by I can only imagine was I thought were tiny pieces of crackling but tasted a bit like popcorn! Also on the plate was puréed apple sauce. And a serving of heritage carrots which for those who don’t know, are purple,the original colour of carrots. We chose not to have an array of vegetables as pork is quite filling. I must say, that with belly pork one tends to be aware of the amount of fat on that cut of meat, but we were pleasantly surprised. It must have melted away in the cooking process as it was meaty, very tasty and we hardly left a scrap. Altogether very delicious. We sat in a beautiful dining room which quickly filled up with other couples. The room was light and area with well appointed decor. Nice and quite on a Monday lunch time. The views from all of the windows were very pretty autumnal shrubbery and greenery from all aspects of this beautiful old country house. The lady who mostly attended to us was called Roxanne and we both agreed that she was indeed a wonderful hostess and for the service alone I would recommend anyone to dine here or even stay as it is after all a hotel. I took lots of photos but I can only put a few on here. Horton Grange Hotel is licensed for weddings and there is a much bigger dining hall for larger parties, again with an air of light and space. Down side? The toilets were a bit cramped and could do with a bit of a refurbishment. I don’t know if there are any more upstairs. There generally is in places like this, known as the powder room. It’s very exclusive place and a lovely romantic venue for couples. Would I come again? Yes I would but I have to admit that I was here with a complementary voucher from a well known car company for purchasing a new model.
