Inspired by the concept of an authentic French brasserie, Wivenhoe House offers a winning combination of classic dishes and modern cuisine to be enjoyed in our attractive and informal setting.
We are committed to sourcing the best local and regional produce to reflect the wealth of flavour and food to be found in East Anglia. Our new menus for lunch and dinner feature firm favourites such as the ever-popular croque monsieur for a filling lunch and the hearty winter warmer, bouillabaisse, combining fish from around our shores in a tasty dish.
On Sunday, dining is a relaxed affair as we revert to what the British do best, adding the traditional roasts to the menu. Each visit, whether with family or friends, is an enjoyable occasion to savour each other’s company and the delicious menu.
Of course, we are still offering our wonderful Christmas lunches throughout December. Perfect for a pre-festivities get together with friends and work colleagues, the menu includes all the traditional favourites as well as a baked salmon and a dessert option of bitter chocolate mousse, candied orange and orange liquor. Including coffee, tea and petit fours the price is £24.50 per person.
On Christmas Day there’s a traditional festive lunch suitable for groups and families, whether it is just the two of you or a large gathering. Starters include cured breast of duck, orange and melon, followed by a palate cleansing mulled wine sorbet. Alongside the roasted Norfolk Bronze turkey, you can choose from seabass, gammon, beef or twice baked leek and potato soufflé. Leave plenty of room for dessert with an impressive choice of Christmas pudding, chocolate tart, pavlova of berries or steamed treacle pudding.
All for £85 per person which includes coffee, tea, infusions, petit fours and mince pies.
