Spectacular gastronomic experiences are offered at every one of Red Carnation Hotels' global properties. Our care and attention to detail goes above and beyond—our bartenders always remember how you like your martini, while our chefs curate remarkable menus fine-tuned to each guest’s unique preference. Indeed, discerning foodies are gladly invited for exclusive tastings at private dining tables. Here is a selection of our superlative food experiences, each intended to raise the bar a little higher every time.

Personalised tasting tables

Choose from three artfully designed five-course menus at The Chef’s Table at The Oyster Box. By appointment only, this bespoke gustatory experience is presented at the skilled hand of their Executive Chef exclusively for groups of between six and 10. Start the evening with Champagne sundowners, exquisite canapés and live music before embarking upon an outstanding culinary journey that surprises and delights with every bite.

Sommelier-curated wine dinners

Secluded wine tasting experiences and special wine dinners are hosted in Ashford Castle’s subterranean wine cellars, which have been opulently restored following their recent discovery. The passageways were dug out in the 16th century to enable servants to transport coal to the rooms. Today, the ambient cellars are perfectly suited for storing and sampling fantastic vintages. Raise an expertly selected glass of wine and toast to a superb dining experience.

Exquisite afternoon teas

At the heart of well-heeled Knightsbridge, The Egerton House Hotel’s stylish Drawing Room serves a quintessentially British culinary tradition: Afternoon Tea. Vegans, gluten-free diners and even four-legged guests are exceedingly well catered for here, with a variety of menus on offer. Whichever you choose, the oven-warm, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam are a perennial favourite.

Private dining in a mesmerising setting

Beneath starry South African skies, Bushmans Kloof’s River Boma dining experience never fails to romance guests. Stroll down to the riverbank, following the winding, lantern-lit pathway. An immaculately set table for two awaits, as does a dedicated waiter who looks after your every need. The five-course menu showcases seasonal produce from the hotel’s walled garden and is paired with a flight of wines from Red Carnation Hotels’ very own Bouchard Finlayson winery.

Immersive seasonal pop-ups

The Montague on the Gardens’ pop-up bar is one of Bloomsbury’s seasonal highlights. Come summer, its sizzling BBQs and stylish Beach Bar are not to be missed. Tuck into delicious food and tropical cocktails with friends. Once winter arrives, beat the chill with an apres-ski in a winter wonderland, all in the heart of London.
