Situated next to the Macdonald Berystede Hotel and Spa in Ascot, The 90-seater, Acanthus Restaurant offers a relaxed approach to fine dining, serving both gourmet dishes, and light bites, which guests can enjoy throughout the day surrounded by views of stunning manicured gardens.
In keeping with the undeniably English atmosphere at The Berystede Hotel, the Acanthus menu features traditional English dishes such as jumbo shrimp cocktail or the famous fish pie. Only the finest Scottish beef, British lamb, pork and wild white fish are selected, joined by organic vegetables and dairy products wherever possible. The dessert menu is equally traditional with Braeburn apple Calvados terrine and apple sorbet, and plum and kirsch liqueur trifle amongst the fine selection available.
The Acanthus bar menu offers a selection of sandwiches and salads for a light lunch and also includes more hearty dishes to enjoy for dinner. The quintessentially English afternoon tea menu has been crafted by head chef Ramneek Chugh in collaboration with Macdonald Group Executive Chef Keith Sheerer, and uses the finest ingredients, many of them locally-sourced, to create indulgent afternoon teas.
Three English institutions, Ascot Racecourse, Windsor Park and the Wentworth Club are within a 10-minute drive of the Acanthus restaurant.
