If you missed out on Beaverbrook’s magical Balloon Dining experience last year, you are in for a treat. Summer’s most whimsical al fresco dining event returns for 2022. Here’s everything you need to know…

Last year, Beaverbrook served up their ‘Reach For The Sky’ Balloon Dining Experience, taking al fresco dining to the next level, with six beautiful ruby and pink, vintage striped hot air balloons filling the hotel’s picturesque Italian gardens that sit right in front of the stately house. Instagram went wild, naturally and they make their return for summer 2022 with a nod to the Jubilee year. The balloons, which for the moment are sitting stationery in the Surrey Hills, have been given a Great British makeover, decked out in Union Jack colours they will serve up the hotel’s celebrated Japanese dining with a twist.

Beaverbrook are once again at the forefront of British travel, offering up style and substance by the bucket load.

In true Beaverbrook fashion, the dining experience isn’t set to be all style over substance, the food has long been a real pull for the hotel too. Diners will be seated in authentic wooden and wicker ‘baskets’ to get the feel of a real hot air balloon and get to tuck into the hotel’s delicious menu from the hotel’s authentic Japanese Ishiyaki menu. Kicking off the gastronomic experience will be cocktails (the bartenders at Beaverbrook are second to none) and a selection of Japanese amuse-bouches, making way for incredible five-courses with dishes such as Native Lobster, Caviar, and Apple Marigold Roasted Soybeans with  Sea Buckthorn Ponzu; as well as Wagyu Beef with Koji Cured Venison, Hokkaido Scallops, and Ikejime Bluefin Tuna. Incredible.

There will be pescatarian and vegetarian menus available too. Plus, the dinners are available to non-hotel guests so whether you make a staycation of it and book a room or just have the most decadent date night out, it won’t be an experience easy to forget.
