Head Chef - Aaron Patterson

A youthful genius who started at Hambleton in 1984 and gained useful experience with Raymond Blanc, Anton Mosimann and others before returning to Hambleton as Head Chef in 1992. He may be lured from time to time to caper about in the television studio for such shows as 'Here's one I made earlier' or 'Masterchef' but his heart remains in the kitchen with his team of ten like-minded enthusiasts.

Hambleton Hall is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. It has been privately owned since 1980 by Tim and Stefa Hart, is a 'location perfect' Victorian mansion lovingly converted into the prestigious hotel as we know it today. It is nestled on top of a hill on an outcrop of land surrounded by Europe's largest man-made lake in the beautiful and picturesque village of Oakham. Interior design remains traditional and fully in keeping.

The restaurant is proud to say that it has the longest-retained single Michelin star in the UK, celebrating 38 years in 2020, and offers exceptional dining experiences worthy of a journey to Hambleton. Michelin star Head Chef, Aaron Patterson and his highly skilled team use the best local produce for seasonal dishes, and is renowned for producing award-winning game dishes such as grouse, partridge and woodcock. They are also very proud of Hambleton Bakery on site which produces all breads and pastries for the restaurant.

We recommend the tasting menu at lunch followed by a walk around the lake for a truly memorable luncheon.

Sommelier Dominique Baduel selects the 400 bin list with proprietor Tim Hart, and cellar tours are available with Dominique to see the few thousand bottles.  Fine Bordeaux, Burgundy, New World and Yquem wines are available by the glass, using the Coravin system.

Hambleton Hall is accredited to Relais & Chateaux and Pride of Britain Hotels.
