Our stunning parkside restaurant is home to The Galloping Major..a restaurant with a past..
Always on horseback, Major James Platt, second inhabitant of Bruntwood Hall was locally known at The Galloping Major. He created the equestrian stud on the estate which is now Bruntwood Park and also added one of the country's first sprung ballroom (at enormous expense) where the restaurant stands today.
By all accounts, he was a renowned character full of vitality, spirit and pep. Now he is immortalised in the magnificent room he created. The Galloping Major stands as it would have stood in those days with its original and dramatic decorative ceilings and enormous fireplace - all set off by dramatic floor-to-ceiling wine chillers and an open kitchen pass that sets the stage for a restaurant where the ingredient is king.
Creative chefs draw inspiration from the natural park and woodland around them to concieve simple yet masterful dishes.
