The Woburn Hotel reopens
The multi award-winning Olivier’s restaurant, at the four AA-star Woburn Hotel, has relaunched with a dramatic new look alongside the new luxurious ‘The Repton Room’ for casual dining.
Located at the gateway to The Woburn Estate, the luxurious Georgian restaurant Olivier’s with The Repton Room has reopened for scrumptious afternoon teas, light lunches and the very best of English and continental dining in the heart of the idyllic Woburn village in Bedfordshire. Now offering 65 covers, Olivier’s and The Repton Room’s stylish overhaul provides guests with a new dining experience. The beautiful interior design features eye-catching artworks and modern lighting and furniture accentuating the decadence of the Woburn Hotel.
Renowned for outstanding English and continental cuisine, Olivier’s restaurant holds 2 AA Rosette Awards for the quality, skill, attention to detail and local ingredients used in its cooking. The restaurant is also a three-time winner of ‘The Foodies Guides’ Restaurant of the Year’ award for the region of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and Northamptonshire. Executive Chef, Olivier Bertho, who trained and worked in France for 10 years, will present his new a la carte menu and Sunday lunch menu alongside more informal options to enjoy in The Repton Room over the coming months.
Adjoining Olivier’s restaurant, The Repton Room provides a truly pleasurable ambiance for casual dining and afternoon tea. Exuding warmth and style with its rich furnishings, the room was inspired by 18th century landscape gardener Humphry Repton, whose bicentenary is celebrated in a new exhibition at the nearby Woburn Abbey. The room is beautifully framed by a striking contemporary portrait of Repton, made using small leaves in red leather and complemented by a bespoke marble topped counter, antler wall mounts, mirrors and chandeliers.
Working with a number of regional suppliers; Trevillion Interiors, Bowdler Construction Ltd, CJ Bricknall & Co Ltd and Allen & Son Electrical & Mechanical Contractors, the restaurants makeover marks the final stage of an extensive hotel renovation of the bedrooms, bar and reception area promising a unique and luxurious hotel in Bedfordshire.
General manager Sue Crowley said: “Dining is at the heart of our hotel and over the past year and form listening to our guests we have seen a need for more casual dining options in luxurious surroundings. It was important to us that the essence of what our guests know and love remained the same. The refurbishment has enhanced the overall dining experience and we are delighted that both Olivier’s and The Repton Room are already proving popular with returning and new guests.”
