Try Our New Vegetarian Menu At Marygreen Manor

Vegetarian Menu

Going out for dinner is the perfect way to finish off any day. Whether you’re full swing into the weekend or maybe even trying to spice up the midweek lull. It not only offers you an array of amazing dishes, so much more appetising than the pesto pasta you were going to throw on the stove but it gets served up for you too. You’re treated like king and queen, unless of course you’re a vegetarian.

Whether you’re vegetarian by moral choice or simply because you don’t enjoy the flavour or texture of meat; going out to dinner can often feel like a chore. Suddenly your choice of meal narrows to just one per course and more often than not, it’s the same meal you had to endure the last five times you ventured out for a meal.

Here at Marygreen Manor however, we wanted to change all of that by offering a specific vegetarian menu that offers more than the obligatory pasta option. In this vegetarian menu, we offer three different starters along with three different main courses too. From wild mushroom risotto to pan fried halloumi, butternut squash and blue cheese wellington to chickpea and butternut squash tagine, our vegetarian menu really does have it all.

On top of our vegetarian menu, we also offer other dietary options too. We simply ask that you request them upon arrival. We’re always happy to help accommodate all of our guests here at Marygreen Manor.

So, if you’re looking for the ultimate vegetarian menu in Essex, we suggest you head straight to our fabulous Tudor restaurant today!

Occasions For Afternoon Tea

Occasions For Afternoon Tea

Occasions For Afternoon Tea

It’s no big secret that here at Marygreen Manor, we love nothing more than a freshly prepared Afternoon Tea. In fact, we love them so much, we’d consider them more of a necessity than a treat. We do understand however, that for some, this lavish display of Britain’s best (finger sandwiches, cakes, scones and delicious clotted creams and jams) can of course seem like a luxury to be enjoyed on special occasions. The question is; during which sort of special occasion should an afternoon tea be enjoyed? Well, we thought we’d help you out a little here and give you a rundown of the special occasions we think befit the elegance and downright indulgent nature of our splendid afternoon teas, starting with…the Baby Shower!

Baby Shower – baby showers are becoming more and more popular before (and sometimes after) the arrival of a new addition. This is where an afternoon tea, and especially our Afternoon Tea in Essex, comes into play. Not only does it give the mother-to-be the perfect opportunity to enjoy some delicious food, but it provides the perfect environment in which everyone can socialise while remaining seated. That means no excess weight on mum-to-be’s feet too.

Hen Party – while for some this may seem a little tame, it would appear hen parties have begun to get a little out of control of late and the trend of sophistication is well and truly back on its way to the top. When it comes to sophistication of course, there’s nothing quite so up there, as an afternoon tea. With refined finger sandwiches and of course, a glass of fizz to give it that extra elegant edge, it’s simply perfect.

Birthday Party – Essex is famous for its fabulous venues and party scenes but what about during the day? Every birthday girl (and boy for that matter) deserve to be treated to something special for their birthday so why not treat them to a delicious afternoon tea before they hit the high street clubs and bars? It’s the perfect way to say “Happy Birthday”!

So, if after this, you’re on the lookout for the best afternoon tea in Essex, look no further than the fabulous Marygreen Manor…we’re famous for it!

Father’s Day Here at Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant

This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday 18th June. We’ve been celebrating this special day for years, especially here at Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant and rightly so, but just where did it originate? Well, despite our love for our fathers, you might be surprised to learn that actually, Father’s Day originated in the United States having been celebrated there since 1966. While many argue over its exact origin, we know the celebration of fatherhood itself began roughly 100 years ago

A huge amount of people believes a Sonora Dodd from Washington, actually came up with the idea after listening to a sermon based on Mother’s Day. Dodd and her siblings were exceptionally close to their father after he’d raised them single-handedly when their mother had died in childbirth. Dodd, subsequently began the campaign and the first unofficial Father’s Day was held in 1910 with towns and cities across America soon following suit. Others claim a Grace Golden Clayton should be credited with the birth of the holiday after she suggested celebrating our male parent way back in 1908. This was following a mine explosion in a near-by town which killed more than 360 men and as such, Grace thought the now fatherless children deserved a day to remember their now lost fathers.

Regardless of its origin, Father’s Day is very much here and while we do agree Father’s should be celebrated every single day, here at Marygreen Manor, we simply can’t pass up an opportunity to celebrate just that little extra. That’s why we have created a very special Father’s Day Lunch with an extra special menu. With delights such as prawn and saffron risotto, duck liver pate and a roast rib eye of beef – it’s guaranteed to put a smile on his face. Call 01277 225252 to book a table today.

The Marygreen Manor Guide To Easter In Essex

Easter In Essex

Easter In Essex

Easter weekend will soon be upon us and what better way to spend it than by exploring Essex, as well as the local area surrounding Marygreen Manor, and all it has to offer. There are a number of events going on, some have even been taking place since the very beginning of April to get everyone in the mood for Easter and here, to make things easier for you, is the Marygreen Manor top pick!

First up, we have the fabulous Easter Egg Hunt at the Abberton Reservoir Visitor Centre in Colchester. This looks set to be a fun session for all the family where you and the little ones get to explore the nature reserve through an eggciting (see what we did there) Easter egg hunt through the reservoir. The Easter bunny has been extra kind and left a few goodies for the little ones to find, guaranteed to keep them occupied while you take in the beautiful scenery. Running from 10:30am to 3pm, we advise you give them a call beforehand to make sure there’s a space available.

Colchester it would seem is the hub of Easter Egg Hunts with the Beth Chatto Gardens Easter egg hunt too in Elmstead Market. For those who simply love their gardening and flowers, this could be the perfect location giving you a chance to take in the beautiful gardens and enjoy the spring blooms while the little ones (or the not so little ones) go off in search of chocolate. With adults costing £6.95 and children a mere £1.50 or free if you book online before you arrive, it’s one you can’t afford to miss.

Last but most certainly not least we’ve got the fabulous Hopefield Animal Sanctuary who’ll be hosting their very own Easter egg hunt which promises not only fabulous chocolate for the kids but an array of stalls, inflatables, live music, animal handling and even the amazing Crazy Legs providing entertainment just for the kids. We think it’s safe to say, Easter in Essex looks set to be super exciting for the kids (and big kids) of the family.
