4 dec The Berkeley Winter Cabins – above – are open from Thursday 4th December 2021 and are open all day from 12PM (last sitting 9.15PM) Wednesday – Saturday, and 12PM – 5PM on Sundays. Cabins have a minimum spend of £500 per sitting and seat up to eight guests.
The Berkeley Winter Cabins will offer a menu of seasonal dishes to be served in convivial eating style. Starters include a trio of rostis flourished with different toppings, a hearty oxtail soup with toasted Gruyère croûte and short-rib croquettes. Mountain-inspired comfort food follows – from veal schnitzel to spätzle and cheese fondue in additional to the main event: an authentic raclette grill, straight from the slopes, for indulgent ‘cook your own’ dishes; a feast of carefully-sourced cheeses, meats and vegetables will be brought to the table for diners to pick and choose, customise and grill – Morbier, Gouda, pastrami, Coppa ham, baby potato wedges, confit pickled onions, chestnut mushrooms and cornichons are all among this delicious smorgasbord. Native lobster, Wagyu beef, grilled tofu, vegetable skewers and shaved black winter truffle are all available to order on this very special menu. Guests will be encouraged to grill their own Wagyu or give their lobster a final sizzle.
For pudding, guests can select from a menu of decadent desserts designed to share, from apple tatin and pear and ginger crumble, to flambéed baked Alaska featuring three different flavours of ice cream. A chocolate croquembouche is set to be a retro showstopper. Finally, the Winter Cabins team will be on hand to present a very special hot chocolate tableside – served short and punchy – as Valrhona chocolate is mixed with a generous glug of either rum or whisky.
