One of our second great loves after chic boutique hotels is gorgeous gourmet food, and our selection of Gourmet Chic Retreats combine fine dining and luxury lodgings to truly indulgent effect.

Stay at Hipping Hall in Lancashire,  between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, which serves award-winning dishes with strong rustic flavours with delicate presentation that you would expect to find in only the very best restaurants. Another renowned foodie option is THE PIG in the New Forest where what’s on the menu revolves around fresh produce from the kitchen garden and local foraging.

Italy is one country that is famous for its food: homemade spaghetti, fresh salads with juicy tomatoes and mozzarella cheese, olive oil and fresh pesto so a break at a boutique hotel here usually means you’re guaranteed to eat well - especially if you stay at one of our Gourmet Chic Retreats. Castello Banfi il Borgo in Tuscany is an award-winning winery and vineyard; Azienda Agricola Mandranova in Sicily is on a working olive farm and Eight Hotel Paraggi in Liguria serves up local specialties and homemade Italian cuisine in its Eight Restaurant.

If you prefer tucking into Moroccan tagines and pastilla, check into Heure Bleue Palais in Essaouira where you can eat traditional dishes and seafood in an ornate oriental lounge or Dar Ahlam in Skoura where the pastry menu was devised by famous French pastry chef Pierre Hermé. As you’d expect the rose macaroons are heavenly. In Berlin, Germany, fashionable Soho House Berlin has a club restaurant and a roof-top pool where you can enjoy cocktails in the summer.
