About Hipping Hall

Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:

Since opening in 2005, Hipping Hall has become one of the most luxurious places to eat in the north. Just shy of a Michelin star, the restaurant with rooms has nevertheless stacked up the awards and mentions over the years, even if things have dropped off a little in 2013/14. It’s touches like seamless service and deep pile carpets that waft you from power shower to dining room that give it the edge. And while undeniably pricey, the food that’s served under a 15th century minstrel’s gallery is turned out by a talented young New Zealander, Brent Hulena. He’s one to watch if starters like hand-dived scallops with butternut squash puree and chicken skin, quail with Sauternes and savoy, and a medley of local lamb and kidneys. Round things off with poetic fantasies such as perfectly turned macarons or a flamboyant butternut squash mousse with orange cake. Expect all the pre-dessert and amuse bouche trimmings. Expertly chosen wines from around the globe are a fine fit (plum sake, and wines from Hungary, Oregon and Gailicia are just a few of the paired choices) at this romantic hideway. Owner, Andrew Wildsmith, is also behind The Ryebeck in Bowness and the forthcoming Forest Side in Grasmere. For his latest operation, he’s placed former Rogan man and one of the region’s most promising chefs, Kevin Tickle, in the kitchen.
