Prévost – a fine dining restaurant specialising in progressive modern British cuisine – will reopen at Haycock Manor Hotel this June.

The restaurant will be housed in the hotel’s orangery overlooking one of the restored landscaped gardens and its new walled kitchen garden. The restaurant occupies part of the multi-million-pound restoration of the Grade II*-listed buildings at the Haycock Manor Hotel, Cambridgeshire.

Peterborough locals will already be familiar with the restaurant, as Executive Chef Lee Clarke first launched Prévost in the city in April 2016. It quickly gained a popular following and received recognition from Michelin, The Good Food Guide and Harden’s.

Clarke is well known for his imaginative creations, which form the signature tasting menus. Now, his highly skilled brigade includes Head Chef Sam Nash who previously spent six years honing his skills at the Michelin starred L’Enclume in Cumbria with Simon Rogan.

General Manager Tom Wortley comments: “fine dining should be an amazing gastronomic delight but we want to combine that with a relaxed sense of fun. Elegance with playfulness – that’s the combination we are looking to create and Prevost fits with that perfectly.”

Guests of Prévost will be greeted with a welcome drink and snacks at the chef’s table in front of the open kitchen before moving to their table in the redesigned 40-seater glass-panelled orangery.

They select a tasting of either five courses or eight courses and each comprise seasonal dishes using ingredients from sourced artisan producers and produce grown in the hotel’s kitchen garden. Example dishes include Carrot tartar, white chocolate and Petrossian Royal Osetra caviar; Norfolk quail, pork jowl, morel and peas and a signature pre-dessert course: the Prévost lime honey pot.   

To compliment the food, sommelier Elena Serban has created a unique and eclectic wine list. The English sparkling wine, Gusbourne, sits alongside the popular Champagnes, together with a selection of organic wines and sake. Serban grew up and trained in Romania, but her extensive experience includes the Japanese powerhouse Hakkasan, where she extended her knowledge and love of sake.

Commenting on the new opening Lee Clarke says: “Since opening Prévost in 2016 we’ve really come a long way. I’m so proud of our accolades but most importantly, I love our loyal customer base.”

Adding: “The revitalisation of the Haycock Manor Hotel has provided me, with my expanded team, the opportunity to re-design and elevate what we offer to a whole new level. We are looking forward to providing a unique experience for those loyal clients as well as seeing many new clients discover and enjoy what we do. We have such an amazing, beautiful space together with an amazing new state of the art kitchen so we can’t wait to be sharing it with them.”

Prévost and the Haycock Manor Hotel will be opening on the 22 June 2021.
