Dinner in the domes: Experience a unique dining opportunity at Kenwood Hall Hotel and Spa

Last weekend Sheffield Magazine was kindly invited down to Kenwood Hall Hotel and Spa to experience their new, stylish afternoon tea courtesy of the hotel’s Laura Ashley Tea Rooms!

The hotel and restaurant venue have recently unveiled three new private dining pods, which each seat 6-8 people. You have the option to hire individual or multiple domes depending on the size and requirements of your party. For our visit, we were a group of 4 and found the dome to be light and spacious. The domes come fully air-conditioned, which is an added bonus as they can feel quite warm in the sunshine. They are also lit up in the evening, which creates a cosy feel. What struck me most was how peaceful it was in both the gardens and the domes, making for a truly relaxing dining experience.

Upon arrival we were showed to our private dome, which offered picturesque views of the hotel and gardens. We opted for the Prosecco Afternoon Tea with dome hire for 2 hours. Dome hire costs from £30 for two hours, plus the cost of your menu choice and any additional drinks. The Prosecco Afternoon Tea consisted of a glass of chilled Prosecco each, a pot of tea or coffee (shared between 2 people) and a selection of freshly made sandwiches, cakes, and scones with clotted cream and jam. For those who do not like tea or coffee, hot chocolate could be offered but sadly they had run out. You could also purchase additional drinks at a cost. The scone was warm and fresh out of the oven, and the cakes were the star of the show. We had generous portions of mini cheesecakes, cherry Bakewell’s and mini chocolate ganache sponges which melted in your mouth. Our sandwich selection consisted of smoked salmon with a lemon and black pepper crème fraiche, cheese and pickle, ham and ale chutney as well as a warm asparagus and goats cheese tart.

We felt the selection catered for all of our needs and tastes. We were so full at the end and had to take the leftovers home!

As well as afternoon tea, dome diners can enjoy sharing charcuterie boards which start at £13.99 per person, a selection of roasts from £17 per person and the ultimate dessert sharing platter at £10 per person, which is a firm favourite with visiting guests.

Ruslana Yarmolyuk, general manager from Kenwood Hall Hotel and Spa said: “At Kenwood Hall we continually strive to find innovative, stylish ways to entertain and upgrade our guest’s experience. The domes are a shining example of this”

Overall, we really enjoyed our afternoon tea dome experience at Kenwood Hall. It provided a unique setting and felt like a real treat, and would be perfect to hire for a special occasion, particularly as we head into the winter months with Christmas just upon the horizon.
