Restaurant of the Month: Old Rectory House
The newly build Orangery Restaurant & Cocktail lounge at Old Rectory House Hotel in Redditch is a relaxed 64-seater dining room and intimate cocktail lounge, overlooking the impressive heated terrace and historic grounds and gardens.
We specialise in seasonal modern British fare, locally sourced salt aged rare breed steak, fresh coastal fish and we have tweaked some traditional dishes using the very best seasonal produce available to us. The 30-seater Damson cocktail lounge opens all week and has an impressive drinks menu featuring handcrafted seasonal cocktails created by the award-winning Shaker Consultancy, the team behind some of the world's best cocktail bars. A rotating selection of craft beers will also be available on tap and in bottles and an extensive international wine menu will provide diners with the perfect pairing for their meals.
