The Tudor Park Marriott Hotel has long since been a favourite with golfing enthusiasts, wedding parties and those looking for a relaxing break. But if you’ve never thought to visit just for a meal, I would urge you to think again.

The hotel’s Conical Grill Restaurant has a contemporary, relaxed feel with stripped wooden flooring and modern furnishings and overlooks the golf course and landscaped gardens at the rear of the hotel.

The traditional Sunday carvery is proving to be very popular with locals and visitors alike, and when you look at  the quality of the food on offer it’s clear to see why.

The buffet style starters were beautifully presented in the middle of the room, with a fantastic selection of cold meats, salads, seafood and pasta and rice dishes. Just don’t be tempted to pile your plate too high, as the main course - the carvery itself, is the star of the show.

With two types of hand carved meat, (beef and pork on the day we dined), Yorkshire pudding, potatoes and a selection of beautifully cooked seasonal vegetables on offer, as well as all the accompaniments you could wish for - and a veggie alternative for non meat eaters, there really is something for everyone.

Head Chef, Tom prides himself on using British produce and local ingredients wherever possible and varies the vegetable dishes depending on seasonal availability.

The beautiful selection of home-made cold desserts laid out in buffet style were imaginative and well presented. From miniature individual trifles, lemon and orange posset, chocolate brownie, Eton Mess, flapjacks and fresh fruit salad, the selection was inspired, offering a magnificent array of both tastes and textures, all of which proved to be a real hit with both adults and children alike.

Restaurant Manager, Robin and his team were very welcoming and extremely helpful and the although the dining room was bustling, the staff go out of their way to make sure that every customer gets the best possible service.

The Conical Grill is a superb family-friendly restaurant; diners will love the excellent choice of food on offer, the attentive, friendly service and the all round relaxed atmosphere (not to the mention the exceptional value for money). So why not get along and experience it for yourself.
