British Food Classics Take Centre Stage at Townfields

The contemporary Townfields restaurant, the newest addition to the Best Western Cresta Court hotel in Altrincham, south Manchester, has opened its doors this month with a menu that features succulent grill dishes alongside traditional British classics and a sprinkling of spice-led favourites from the recipe collection of chef, Simon Hardman-Taylor.

Simon Hardman-Taylor joined the Best Western Cresta Court hotel team last month, bringing with him over 20 years of experience from roles such as at the five-star Lowry Hotel, Copthorne Hotel Salford Quays, 3 AA Rosette winning Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire and Gary Rhodes’ Rhodes Restaurant.

Omelette Arnold Bennett, Asparagus and Lemongrass Soup and spicy Prawns Pil Pil make inviting starters. They share billing on the menu with Simon Hardman-Taylor’s signature dish of slow Braised Shoulder of Lamb served with glazed Baby Vegetables and Dauphinoise Potato, a classic Beer Battered Cod with a Minted Pea Puree and triple cooked Chips, and a grill section offering 28 day matured Steaks, succulent Lamb Barnsley Chop and a Charred Jerk Salmon Supreme in a classic Caribbean Jerk Marinade with a Coconut Puree and Lime Rice.

Dessert lovers will have a choice of a Lancashire classic of homemade warm Eccles Cake served with Clotted Cream, a warm Chocolate Brownie or a selection of local Dunham Massey Ice Creams – made only a few miles from the kitchen door.

£175 000 has been invested in creating this new 100 seat restaurant, located at the front of the Hotel, and its contemporary interior design features plush shades of azure alongside accents of white, cream, brown and gold. Seating is in a range of round booths as well as traditional chairs and tables, making it idea for intimate dining occasions or larger family or business gatherings.

The Townfields restaurant is open daily from 5.30pm. It offers a Kids Eat Free deal for children aged under 13 years ordering from the children’s menu. (One adult main course must be ordered and the offer is available for a maximum of four children per dining family.) Visit or tweet @CrestaCourt
