Rutland Hall Hotel restaurant serves 58,000 guests in first year of launch | Article


Blossoms Restaurant, which is situated within Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa, celebrated its first year in operation on 6 July and revealed it has already served more than 58,000 guests across various culinary occasions.

Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa is a 19th Century country house hotel, offering guests suites and lodges alongside standard, deluxe and superior rooms.

The restaurant was a key part of the hotel’s multi-million pound refurbishment last year and features booth seating, sectioned areas and a teal colour scheme, alongside a blossom tree centrepiece and a grand piano by the entrance.

Leading the culinary team is executive head chef Sumit Chakrabarty and all of the dishes served at Blossoms are cooked from scratch using fresh and local ingredients.

According to Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa, its “most popular” dish over the past 12 months has been the signature ‘Blossoms burger’, while its “most sought after” drink has been the ‘Lake Blossoms cocktail’ – invented in-house by one of the teams.

Commenting on the success of the last year, Chakrabarty said: “It’s been a great joy to watch Blossoms grow into a unique and recognised destination that has become a staple of the Rutland culinary map. It’s been a long journey, and while there have been many challenges along the way, the post pandemic squeeze and increasing food costs to name a few, I’m very proud of my team and I can’t wait to see where the next year takes us.”

Jo White, managing director of Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa, added: “Blossoms has quite literally blossomed over the past year, having transformed into a well established and popular venue. A lot of credit has to go to Sumit and his team – the amount of time and care he invests into Blossoms’ kitchen is remarkable. He’s not only elevated our food offering, but elevated the capabilities of the whole culinary team, looking after those eager to learn from him.”
