New for 2019: Beau’s Bar and Restaurant. The famous Beau Brummel, son of William Brummel, lived here at Donnington Grove in the late 18th Century. Beau was famously known as a Dandy and a fashion icon of his time and introduced the style for gentlemen to wear and shirt and cravat – with a jacket! Raise a glass at Beau’s to Great British style, fashion and tradition as we create and serve our new menus with this provenance in mind.
