Antonia’s Kitchen is taking over Western House for two evenings of fabulous fine dining this December

The pop-ups are held at Western House, a stunning Georgian property within easy reach of Newton Abbot. It’s stylishly furnished, including an elegant kitchen complete with an aga, making it a cosy yet sophisticated location for a relaxed dining.

Guests can enjoy a complimentary drink on arrival in the drawing room, before sitting down for a set fine dining menu in the dining room. One guest thanked Antonia’s Kitchen for a recent dinner, saying, ‘Everybody is still talking about it and saying it is the best meal they’ve ever had.’

It’s not surprising when you consider the efforts that go in behind the scenes to make these dinners a success. Antonia Makeig-Jones, who owns Antonia’s Kitchen, is passionate about food and is a highly accomplished cook. Antonia’s team work directly with suppliers to source the freshest local ingredients to prepare its dishes and everything runs like clockwork.

It’s the perfect way to get in the festive mood this December. You can event bring your own wine as Antonia’s Kitchen don’t charge corkage!

Spaces are available for dinner on December 11 and 18 (December 12 has already sold out). The fixed price menus are £30 per head. Private dinner parties are available for groups of 22 guests.
