Instead of my usual weekly round up of news, today I thought that I’d share with you a flurry of exciting new openings that I am looking forward to.

ones to watch in 2019

There is a restaurant on a country estate in Herefordshire, a seafood restaurant in Birmingham, a gin distillery in Warwickshire and hotel dining in Stratford upon Avon that I predict will be the restaurants to watch in 2019.

The Netherwood Estate on the Herefordshire / Worcestershire borders will be the picturesque setting of the new Pensons restaurant.  The countryside setting will give Head Chef Lee Wescott (formerly of The Typing Room in London) the opportunity to farm, forage and grow ingredients bringing to life his ethos of eating locally, seasonal and sustainably.  Pensons will be open for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday and for lunch from Thursday to Sunday from the 24th of January.

  • enjoy a wine tasting with Connolly’s Wine and a selection of tapas at The Hive’s new Saturday Sessions
  • tuck into a delicious Talton Mill home- reared pork and cider stew at their Pork & Cider Wasseil
  • the Dining for Sight supper club kicks off the New Year with an Asian inspired menu
  • celebrate the Californian wines of Orin Swift at the Hyatt Regency hotel
  • join a brigade of past and present Simpsons chefs for a special one-off dinner.
  • toast the haggis at Warwick Castle’s Burns’ Night supper and
  • step back in time for a Heritage Afternoon Tea, based on 18th century recipes, at the Market Hall Museum in Warwick.
