Food & Wine Breaks


Wine Weekend

Food and fine dining is at the heart of Thurlestone Hotel’s ethos and its special Food and Wine breaks have been part of the hotel’s calendar for many years.  Masters of Wine host guest tastings and choose wines to complement Thurlestone head chef Hugh Miller’s special menus. Most of the breaks have a theme such as “France v the Rest of the World” or “Italian Wines” etc     The food and wine breaks are informative and fun and allow guests to enjoy the very best in food and wine in the comfortable four star surroundings of Thurlestone Hotel in its stunning location and with its extensive leisure facilities.
