Coworth Park has welcomed its new restaurant, Woven by Adam Smith, at Coworth Park in Berkshire, UK. The Dorchester Collection luxury country house hotel opens its doors to the new eatery today, with Executive Chef and former Roux Scholarship winner Adam Smith at the helm.

The theatrical and contemporary interiors created by Martin Hulbert Design have been conceptually created around the season of autumn, and curated to blend seamlessly into the Georgian manor house setting. Diners are greeted by a set of sculptures by Marcus Crane and Dan Ainsworth inspired by the Coworth Park gardens at the entrance of the venue – which also includes a wine room and pantry with two floor-to-ceiling wine cellars, a dining room that seats 44, and a light-filled conservatory with expansive views over the Berkshire countryside. The restaurant’s centrepiece is a striking plaster relief set with root vegetables, made by artisans Locker & Riley, while a contemporary light installation above (from British architect Umut Yamac in collaboration with MHD) mimics a woodland canopy, tying the space to its surroundings.

Smith’s culinary journey begins with a selection of snacks served from the pantry, including devilled egg, coronation chicken and cured seabass. The food is paired with welcome drinks from a list that celebrates British wines alongside library vintages from some of the best producers around the world, and cocktails that use sustainable British spirits from Sapling.

The menu has been designed to challenge the expectations of the classics, with recipes, ingredients and dishes reinterpreted through the lens of Smith’s personal experience. It champions British produce via dishes such as brown crab with radish, apple, basil and yuzu, as well as Hen of the Woods with Old Winchester, turnip and truffle and Hereford beef with potato, onion, tendon and tongue. In celebration of Coworth Park’s beehives, desserts include black fig, estate honey, walnut and bee pollen.
