Chewton Glen is an 18th-century beautiful beast and, with its refined air and formal elegance, it cant help but exude that very particular type of Englishness that makes you wish you knew all the words to the national anthem.An error has occurred.The food is exceptional, full of flavour and the chef clearly is exceptionally creative.The decor at this Hampshire boutique hotel may be traditional, but its freshened up with contemporary lighting, big, bold flower displays and acid-coloured cushions resting on delightfully upholstered armchairs (an effect so potent that one starts saying things like delightfully upholstered armchairs quite unselfconsciously).This weekend has turned into a total food and wine fest and indeed later that evening back at Chewton Glen, we find Richard, aka 'The Best Barman In The World'.Read More, make an Enquiry, cruise and Stay Package, for the perfect pre or post cruise hotel break in one of Hampshire's most wonderful five star hotels, Chewton Glen is conveniently located only 35 minutes from Southampton.We went for our wedding anniversary and we couldnt have asked any more from them.Many lazy hours later we take the woodland walk down through the hotel grounds to the beach, where we are confronted with another particularly English combination: sunburnt skin, too-tight swimwear and a retro ice-cream van.We take our sticky mint choc-chip hands for a walk along the front to Barton on Sea and soon stumble across a cliff-top restaurant called the Beachcomber.Thank you to all the staff for your dedication to customer care and quality.
