Greenwoods Estate, the leading retreat and spa in Essex, and the work of its executive chef Jonathan Brown, at Le Bois Vert restaurant, has been awarded a gold star in a national womenå‘s magazine dining review.
Greenwoods Estate won the top award in Woman’s Own’s influential annual review of hotel and spa dining.
Jonathan Brown, who trained under Raymond Blanc at the Le Manoir Aux Quatre Saisons, is dramatically raising the standards of hotel and spa dining in his work at Greenwoods Estate.
He challenges the traditional view of spa food as one of abstinence and self-sacrifice - all lettuce leaves and miniscule portions - with delicious, fresh food created from local ingredients.
The regularly changing menu with Mediterranean influences makes the best use of seasonal produce, including East Anglian specialities such as Colchester oysters, pork and turkey.
Now you don’t need to be a resident at the spa to enjoy the finest cuisine that East Anglia has to offer.
In the light of this success and in response to demand, Greenwoods Estate now has a stylish private dining room available for hire, seating up to 20 diners, in which to enjoy some of Jonathan Brown’s finest creations in relaxed informal surroundings for private dining and special occasion celebrations.
The fine dining room at Le Bois Vert is suitable for all types of occasion, from business meetings to birthday parties, anniversary, engagement and even wedding celebrations.
Menus are specially tailored to account for dietary requirements and particular preferences as well as seasonal availability of produce.
