Published by .

Dan Moon 01

Dan Moon at The Gainsborough isn’t just a restaurant.  It’s an experience.

You walk through the doors into the warm and welcoming ambience of the beautiful historic building. A friendly member of the waiting team takes your coats and – if you’re in the mood for a cocktail or aperitif – ushers you into the sleek Gainsborough Bar. Then you take your seats in the elegant yet informal dining area, where you’ll be offered a choice of menus.

What follows next can only be described as culinary bliss: mouth-watering combinations of perfectly cooked seasonal ingredients, the freshest fish and the very best cuts of meat. Each creation is delicate, beautifully presented and wonderfully flavoured. Head Chef Dan Moon is continually developing his menus, meaning you’ll always find something different to try each time you visit.

Warm fragrant breads served with churned-on-site butter; meltingly soft chicken liver parfait;  still-smoking smoked salmon; Dan’s signature Creedy Carver Duck; butternut squash croquette; dark chocolate delice with salted caramel sorbet… and these are just a few of the options on offer. How will you choose?

Oh-So-Lovely Lunches

If you visit at lunchtime you can enjoy the beautifully presented three course lunch menu – perfect for business or leisure. Currently two-for-one, two guests can enjoy their meals for £38 (excluding weekends).  Served 12:00 to 14:30, Monday to Friday.

Sunday Roasts are available 12:30 to 15:00 every Sunday – three courses for £30, with a complimentary glass of Prosecco

Decadent Dinners and Tasting Menus

For a special occasion why not visit in the evening and sample the à la carte dining menu – served 18:00 to 21.30? Or if you have plans in the evening but still want to dine you can enjoy the pre-theatre menu: three courses for £35, 18:00 to 19:00.

For an extra special treat, try our new five and seven course tasting menus.
