Spring 2010 will see the opening of a 60 seat restaurant in the grounds of a Midlands stately home providing picture-perfect surroundings in which to enjoy high quality, locally-sourced food and drink.

Weston Park has begun work on its latest business venture, The Granary Bar and Grill, which completes the final phase of its restoration programme. The ambitious development project has already seen the transformation of part of the disused building into a ground floor farm shop and an art gallery, created in the eaves of the building.

The restaurant will be located in the old malting house of the restored 18th century Granary building and will provide a modern British menu incorporating the region’s finest produce.

The new Bar and Grill will feature a spilt level seating area and will provide diners with views over the pools, as well as the estate’s church and cottages. The state-of-the-art open plan kitchen and preparation areas will be located in the former slaughter house.

The restaurant development will complete the estate’s dining repertoire allowing more visitors the opportunity to enjoy great food at everyday prices as Colin Sweeney, Weston Park’s Chief Executive explains.

He said: “Our latest project will complete the Weston Park all year round experience bringing the very best of locally sourced food and drink to the heart of our customers. It complements beautifully our fine dining occasions in the main house and our more informal style in the stables coffee bar.”

Weston Park hosts a number of public events throughout the year in its 1,000 acres of parkland including the popular V Festival and the Midland Game Fair. The House, gardens and parkland is open to the public throughout the summer offering a children’s Adventure Playground, woodland walks, lakes and follies.

As the former home to the Earls of Bradford, the estate is held in trust for the nation by the Weston Park Foundation. All profits from commercial activities directly fund the on-going preservation of the estate for future generations.

The Granary Farm Shop and Gallery is open seven days a week stocking locally produced food and drink and is free to enter.
