Macallan Manor House at the Rosewood

The Macallan Manor House is an alfresco dining experience created by the Rosewood Hotel in conjunction with whisky brand The Macallan. Peter Gray reports.

There’s nothing quite as fun as a cosy winter pop up, and the Rosewood’s Macallan Manor House is about as inviting as they get. Set in the swish surroundings of Holborn’s Rosewood hotel, The Macallan Manor House is a wonderfully timely alfresco dining experience created by the hotel in conjunction with renowned whisky brand The Macallan.

Taking its inspiration from the rolling Scottish hills and The Macallan’s  Highlands’ estate, the terrace is a warm and welcoming space to spend time with friends and family.

The entrance to the venue sets the scene: all graceful pine trees and beautiful blue heather and purple thistles. The interior, meanwhile, harks back to The Macallan’s newly opened distillery in Speyside. Copper hanging lights recall the copper stills using in the whiskey making process, and a series of wall maps highlight the brewery’s location in Scotland.

To ensure the venue is toasty warm, a series of electric garden heaters work in tandem with underseat heating. The net effect is that you are as cosy as you would be indoors. Indeed, this is just the sort of place I could see myself curling up in on a cold winter’s night.

Visitors to the Rosewood will have several Macallan whisky cocktails to choose from, as well as two dishes created especially for the pop up by the formidable Roca Brothers.

The Macallan Manor House is currently closed due to the Coronavirus Crisis. More information about the pop up can be found here.
