Michelin Awards 2023

The Dining Room at Whatley Manor Hotel & Spa is delighted to have retained its Michelin Star for a second year, as announced at the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland Ceremony on Monday 27 March. The restaurant is one of only three in Wiltshire currently holding the prestigious accolade and the only hotel in the county to possess a Michelin Green Star for its dedication to sustainable gastronomy.

Ricki Weston, Executive Chef, The Dining Room, says: “It’s incredible to have the hard work of our team recognised by the Michelin Guide once again. It’s been a terrific year heading up the restaurant and Whatley Manor’s wider culinary offering, and we’re feeling very motivated to keep pushing ourselves and creating dishes that put The Dining Room on the map as a must-visit dining destination.”

Sue Williams, General Manager, Whatley Manor Hotel & Spa, says: “We’re thrilled to have retained our Michelin Star for another year and I feel incredibly proud of Ricki and his team. Not only do they create such accomplished menus, they have wholeheartedly committed to our mission to achieve carbon neutrality, demonstrated by the retention of our Michelin Green Star.”

The seasonally changing menu at The Dining Room combines locally sourced ingredients – including produce from the hotel’s kitchen garden, beef reared on farmland adjacent to the hotel and flour milled locally in the Cotswolds – with accomplished cooking, resulting in a menu of creative and enticing dishes that bring a modern twist to the traditional. The new chefs tasting menu is designed to evoke a sense of nostalgia in diners through unexpected flavours and playful presentation. Standout dishes include Lamb with tartar and lettuce relish, Brill with spice citrus, champagne and potato, and a sweet Plum with custard and honey vinaigrette.
