A crafty reduction for Father’s Day at Dunston Hall

Dunston Hall has launched a Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea in perfect time for Father’s Day – and guests dining on Sunday, June 17, can also enjoy a free beer and a reduced green fee to be taken any time in June.

Anybody booking the Father’s Day ‘Crafternoon Tea – so called because of the availability of a complimentary Goose Island craft beer – can enjoy a choice of eight Novus teas to accompany their bookcase of savoury snacks. These include a range of black, green and white or herbal teas.

The savoury menu items include crispy fried ham-hock bon bons with mustard-seed mayo, a mini steak and ale pie with red wine gravy, lamb and mint slider with redcurrant and red onion relish, warm cheese scone and, finally, whisky-scented salmon on pumpernickel, sweet-cured cucumber.

Sweet cravings can also be satisfied with a warm fruit scone severed with clotted cream and preserves, sherry trifle jar, doughnuts with dips and warm, freshly made madeleines with sweet green tea syrup.

What’s more, anybody booking the Father’s Day ‘Crafternoon Tea’ will receive 50 per cent off a green fee at Dunston Hall, to be taken any time in June.

Director of golf at Dunston Hall, Tom Turner, explained: “The Crafternoon Tea is available at a number of RBH properties but as the only golf resort among them we wanted to make it extra special for the golfing father out there.

“And, whisper it quietly, but, the reduced green fee doesn’t have to be for the same person. You can treat your father to a lovely tea and then use the green fee yourself if you want to be sneaky – just don’t tell him I said it was OK,” smiled Turner.

Managed by RBH, the UK’s leading independent hotel management company, Dunston Hall’s Elizabethan-style mansion, dating from 1859, has been lovingly restored to all its former glory as a four-star hotel. Built against 150 acres of stunning wooded Norfolk parkland, the setting is just as unique as its history.

The golf course is a 6,275-yard, par-71, USGA-rated layout which contours around the estate, with magnificent parkland fairways dotted with trees and strategically placed bunkers. And, in 2016, Dunston Hall completed a £500,000 expansion of its health club facilities.

As the largest golf resort operator in the UK, RBH manages nine championship and tournament golf courses across the UK, hosting events from the European Tour, European Seniors Tour, Ladies European Tour and the PGA.
