Description: Dining is a very special event at Blantyre, Relais & Châteaux. Late every afternoon, the Main House undergoes a lovely transformation as we prepare for the delightful dining experience to come that evening. Linens are brought out, tables are set with sterling silver, fine china, crystal, and fresh flowers. Beautiful music fills the air and candles are lit. Under the knowing eye of Chef Arnaud Cotar, the kitchen is a hive of activity as the finest ingredients are used to create a memorable, outstanding dining experience. When you arrive, you can enjoy a pre-dinner glass of Champagne and canapés on the Covered Terrace or in the Main Hall, or sample one of our rich red wines in the Music Room. When your first course is ready our host will escort you to the dining room where your delicious dinner begins. Enjoy a glass of wine from our Wine Cellar, the recipient of the 2011 Grand Award Wine Spectator. Should your evening plans include a Friday or Saturday performance at Tanglewood or Jacob's Pillow, you may wish to postpone dessert. Upon your return, coffee, an assortment of cheeses and a beautifully prepared dessert buffet is served in the Music Room. In keeping with our house tradition, we require gentlemen to wear a jacket and tie. We also offer 24-hour room service.

We had dinner at the Blantyre restaurant one night when we stayed there. It is very relaxing to sit in the drawing room and have a cocktail by the fire while you chose your dinner selections. Our martinis were excellent - nice and dry and served in chilled crystal glasses that are not your usual martini glass at all! Very heavy and elegant. Linen cocktail napkins. Dinner is a 3 course prix fix, and all our choices were delicious - the tuna tartar and lobster for the first course and quail with foie gras for the second course. My husband had the veal tenderloin for the third course - it was the most amazing thing I have tasted and I wished I had gotten it as well. Completely tender and cooked to perfection. My monkfish wrapped in bacon was good, but not awesome. We had a reasonably priced bottle of Sancerre - yummy! - and a delicious chocolate dessert, followed by coffee in the drawing room. Staff were delightful, the flowers beautiful, and the setting and decor oozed old world charm. The napkins, china, silverware, glasses and chairs were all of superior quality. A very special evening and memorable meal. Not your typical dinner at all.

My daughter found this hotel at the last minute!
What a wonderful surprise we had when we arrived!! The hotel is like Downton Abbey-beautiful in every way! The Staff was so gracious and welcoming- after settling our luggage in our fantastic room-complete with a fireplace set up to start instantly- we enjoyed a cocktail before one of the two fireplaces in the living room while listening to a "live" piano player !

Our breakfast was served in the conservatory which is so beautiful- you don't want to leave!
I could go on & on!! Highly recommend this
Hotel- restaurant & Spa!!!

What an experience! We drove up and was instantly greeted as if they were waiting for us! A beautiful old manor home . I was impressed on how clean it was. Gorgeous flowers everywhere. Period furnishings abound. Our room was very nice and decorated and furnished beautifully. Service was impeccable. I loved the evening piano music in the music room while we had a cocktail and read the menu. Dinner was a treat. Delicious food. The bread was so good I requested it three times! Breakfast was several courses and prepared beautifully. both meals featured elegant table furnishings. My only complaint was that the chairs and sofas for the most part had poor foundations, probably because of the age. Just go!

My cousins asked their 95 year old mother where she wanted to go for lunch. This was an important decision because she had not been well enough recently to go out. She had been to Blantyre's once before and said she wanted to go there again. It was a great choice. The very professional staff treated her like royalty. The nine of us had salads and lobster sandwiches, mushroom soup and a couple of other entrees. Everything was excellent. I unreservedly recommend going there for lunch but be prepared for the bill.
