Highgate House in Creaton is renowned for its delicious food and attentive service, specialising in modern English and European cuisine.The Terrace, a contemporary brasserie-style restaurant is light and airy and adjoins with the bar, situated in a modern conversion within the main house. Award-winning head chef Lee Gaskins and his team take their food influences from Europe, designing menus that take advantage of local and seasonal produce throughout the year, giving preference to sustainable options where possible. For those staying at the hotel, breakfast is also served in The Terrace Restaurant, in the shape of an extensive breakfast buffet with eggs cooked as specified, to order. Lunch buffets are later served with plenty of options, before table service resumes in the evening. Every Sunday, the Terrace Restaurant is open for traditional Sunday carvery lunches, from 12.30pm. A restaurant with a conscience, The Terrace only ever use free-range local Northamptonshire eggs, fish from sustainable sources and preference is always given to British meat, fairtrade products, seasonal vegetables and local produce wherever possible.

Came to Highgate House for a Champagne Afternoon Tea bought for me as a birthday present. The staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The food was plentiful and tasted delicious. We could not eat all the lovely cakes but were given boxes to take them home.

Unfortunately the carvery at The Terrace restaurant was very disappointing on this visit. The starter and the pudding were up to the usual high standard, the main course definitely not. There were not many tables dining when we were there and that may well have have had an impact. We were last to eat from the carvery at 1.30pm, which isn’t particularly late for a Sunday. The meat which was freshly carved for us was nice, but the rest of the accompaniments were only just warm and appeared to have been sitting for some time. I won’t be returning for Sunday lunch, however, I wouldn’t hesitate to go back for afternoon tea or a function, both of which have always served top quality food and drink in the past. Maybe cooking to order would be the way to go on a Sunday, unless you know there will be a full restaurant with a better turnover of food from the carvery. The staff as always were lovely and the service great.
