There is no itinerary, no agenda – just space to enjoy the great food, good company and stunning views.

Meet the Chef - Rob Mason

Rob Mason takes the helm in our kitchen, and for good reason. Having worked his way up the ranks in some of the UK’s most innovative establishments, Rob now brings his flair and flavour pairings to 1919 Restaurant. His menu is heartfelt and instinctive, led by using top quality, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients.

“It’s all about keeping it simple and letting the ingredients do the talking,” says Rob. “Tasty food full of flavour that all comes together on the plate, combining the best quality meat or fish with indulgent sauces and seasonal produce.”

Pickling and fermenting to preserve food is a big part of Rob’s cooking style, using the nature around him to enhance some truly classic local flavours. The raw garlic growing in the hotel’s front garden is diffused in oil and the flowers are pickled for use to enhance the menu throughout the year. Rob is planning to create a kitchen garden so his team can grow their own vegetables and herbs, which is an exciting part of bringing our 3AA Rosette 1919 Restaurant to the next level.



Lunch, or as we like to call it, all-day nibbling, lasts throughout the day at The Cottage in the Wood Malvern, and it’s full of the good stuff. We like to take it easy without an agenda or itinerary – just good food available for you to enjoy after a walk or when you’ve just checked in.

Tasting Menu


Our seven-course tasting menu is a gastronomic journey through Worcestershire, using locally sourced ingredients meticulously prepared by our award-winning chefs. Including meat, fish and plant-based dishes, the tasting menu is constantly changing to make the most of the seasonal ingredients of local suppliers.
