Swinfen Hall has now been operating for over twenty years and the standards that apply are a reflection of the experience gained, as well as appreciation shown. There are eighteen bedrooms and suites all of which vary greatly in size, shape and aspect, but each has been individually furnished to offer style and comfort. The Bridal Suite is a tour de force with silk wall hangings and a canopied king size bed. The en suite bathroom has twin basins set in marble, a large Jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle.
All bedrooms and suites are individually furnished, all offer 100% goose down duvets, Egyptian cotton sheets, bathrobes, hospitality tray, satellite television, DVD player and free Wi-Fi access.
The kitchens at Swinfen Hall serve only the finest of fresh produce, and whenever possible local sources are used including Staffordshire-grown strawberries, raspberries and asparagus, cheeses and in winter, local game. They now have organic home-reared venison - from their own deer park - on the menu and a number of vegetables and soft fruits are grown in the Victorian walled garden. Their well-established kitchen brigade, led by Head Chef Adam Thomson, works hard to find specialist suppliers who are committed to quality not quantity.
Their menus are both exciting and inventive; dishes on their dinner carte could include such tempting choices as fillet of smoked mackerel with horseradish, rhubarb, radish and broccoli salad; seared diver-caught scallops with cauliflower, quail's eggs and black truffle, or terrine of 'walled garden' leeks with crisp lobster beignet and truffle cream.
Mains follow in much the same vein with tenderloin of Packington pork; breast of Gressingham duck with orange and sultana fricassee, celeriac purée and wild mushroom, or fillet of Aberdeen Angus beef with pommes pont-neuf, stuffed plum tomato and parsley purée. Pan-fried fillet of sea bream is served with saffron linguine, mussels, clams and chives.
Their cheese selection contains names that gladden the hearts of those disposed to such indulgence and includes some distinguished English entrants.
The food is complemented by an extensive wine list where they aim to offer quality, diversity and value. They buy directly from vineyards, through specialist merchants and at auction, creating a degree of individuality to their list that greatly exceeds many other similar places. Their wine list is constantly changing as they discover interesting new wines.
The private dining room is the original dining room of the Hall and is available for luncheon and dinner parties for 22 guests. This beautiful room provides a lovely setting for birthday and anniversary celebrations, retirement parties or any special occasion. There is no room hire charge for tables of 16 or more and menus, wines, flowers, and cake can be arranged to suit.
Easily accessible by good roads and by air, they are centrally located for business meetings and conferences being only 20 minutes from the heart of Birmingham, the NEC and Birmingham International Airport. More information, including accommodation and private dining, is available on their Website.

Simon (17 June 2005)
I held my wedding reception at Swinfen Hall. Wedding breakfast for 14 people and warm buffet for 35 on the evening with disco. The setting was superb, the food was excellent and the staff were professional, friendly and more than willing to help. Overall this establishment could not do enough to help and make the day just perfect for us both. I would highly recommend you either try the restaurant or hold your wedding reception here, it will be a day to remember for all the right reasons. Well done to the staff and, thanks.
