You may have read our blog post about testing out the delightful breakfast at The Worsley Park Marriott Hotel and Country Club earlier this year. When we were invited back for a bloggers evening to sample the new menu from The Grill, who are we to say no to such an offer when we had such a great time before.
Nathan and I ventured down on an early summer’s evening in July along with a handful of other bloggers. On arrival we had drinks on the patio, accompanied by a Jamaican steal band before heading inside for the start of our special evening. We were given a private dining area for the evening and had our own cocktail mixologists with us to demo how to make the best mojito and cosmopolitan, and after the demo we got to shake our thing and have a go ourselves. The cocktail masterclass is now on offer to guests who book special parties and functions at The Grill and certainly added an extra flare to our evening.
While we shaked, stirred and zested our way through the steps on the cocktail class our food was being prepared to order. With such a vast menu it was hard to pick what we wanted. I opted for the crab cakes where as Nathan opted for the chicken skewers in satay sauce. Both dishes were presented beautifully and tasted amazing too. Before we had further time to chat the plates were whisked away and our mains were delivered.
I went big and opted for the rib eye steak, medium rare, served with sweet potato fries and a peppercorn sauce. I could not fault the main at all. It was devine. Nathan went for the beer battered fish and chips and said it was the best he had ever had.
Full, but we could not pass on the puddings menu, Nathan chose a special sticky toffee pudding which was highly recommended, I had a raspberry ripple ice cream sundae, complete with macaroons and freeze dried fruit. But the real showstopper dessert came in the form of their chocolate pot, served on a slate, it was a fully edible garden complete with fondant carrots, chocolate spoon and rice paper butterflies! A work of art that was a shame to eat. But plenty of photos were taken before the other diners tucked in.
After a full three course meal with drinks, cocktails, live music and fantastic conversation, we bid the hotel farewell, but I could have easily fallen into a deep sleep in one of their rooms. We will be returning to The Grill again soon, as Nathan and I both have our eyes on other items on the menu and the chocolate pot too!
We were gifted with the meal and evenings entertainment for the basis of our review. You can also see how the night progressed in our YouTube video too!
