The Clayton, a sophisticated hotel based a five minute stroll from the centre, is a tranquil home away from home sheltered away from the hustle and bustle. Although the stylish and contemporary setting is perfect for a relaxing stay, you are more than welcome to drop by for a quick bite to eat, romantic dinner, a couple of drinks, or even a glam bottomless brunch with chums. Additionally, they have plenty of options for diners no matter their dietary requirements. Vegans, vegetarians and gluten-free customers are all catered for, with allergens clearly advised across all menus.
Here is a walk through of all they have to offer for the most amazing day/night out in this wonderful space, whatever the occasion:
Date Night – The Grill
A beautiful way to spend an evening. The Clayton Grill offers the best of service and a menu that takes you around the world in a heart-beat, expect fabulous dishes with much flare here. A host of hearty meals are available to choose from. With The Grill serving a range of flavoursome steaks, cooked to your preference.
An exotically fresh start is a light way to begin a romantic evening. Fennel & orange accompany this finely sourced seafood, with an avocado puree alongside, this dish is airy, clean and completely refined.
10oz Rib Eye Steak
Skin on fries, grilled vine tomatoes and dressed watercress are sides to this quality meat meal. We recommend ordering this with the delicious peppercorn sauce. A creamy, rich and powerful accompaniment to a flavour-packed steak.
Lemon Meringue Ice Cream Sundae
Cut through that decedent main with a sharp sweet, sure to leave you salivating. A combination of extravagant tastes mixed into a fun dessert, that isn’t at all too heavy. All the better if drinks are in order to finish off your evening in style.
Quick Bite – Alvar Bar
For those who fancy fuss-free food at a more casual pace. The Clayton has just about all preferences covered! The Alvar Bar is ideal for someone visiting on business, or those who crave quality with a laid-back environment as key. A quick-bite is exactly what you will find here, without missing out on the freshest of options and amazing tastes. Both small bites and main meals are available on this menu.
Chicken Club Sandwich
You just cannot beat this classic sandwich, right? The Clayton’s club is the ultimate treat for lunch if you are feeling famished. A double-decker packed with warm chicken, bacon, egg-mayo, lettuce and tomato. What’s more? Your choice of soup, salad or fries partners with this lunch to make a satisfying bite.
Taste of India
It’s difficult to choose just one platter at the Clayton but after much thought, we managed! It’s the ‘Taste of India’ delight for us. Bhajis, pakoras, samosas are crafted with the right amount of spice and come with chutney, dips and poppadums for an amazingly delectable array.
Creamy goat’s cheese packs a savoury punch, levelled with sharp red onion and zingy balsamic, creating one whirlwind of a taste sensation. All on light, crispy dough that won’t leave you feeling unpleasantly full, just 100% content.
Beer Battered Cod and Chips
This pretty much speaks for itself. The traditional British dish that just can’t help but leave a smile on your face! This is a sophisticated take on the chip-shop favourite, arriving with lavishly buttered peas and a tart tartare with a squeeze of tangy lemon adding a freshness to the dish, like no other!
Girly Get Together – Bottomless Brunch
The two magic words! Bottomless Brunch. Get the girls together and take advantage of this amazing offer, it must be done! 2 courses and unlimited prosecco or other selected drinks are just £35 per person.
