A delicious dessert of Blacketyside strawberry cheesecake, fresh mint sorbet and passionfruit syrup will be served in Peacock Alley to round off the evening. At the heart of the hotel, Peacock Alley is the old station concourse turned into a luxurious lounge with stunning red sandstone walls and a striking peacock light feature.
The dinner will be held on Wednesday 6th June at 6.30pm. Costing £40 + VAT per person, tickets for this exclusive event are limited and can be purchased here.
