Description
Tucked away inside the chic Beales Hotel in Hatfield, the Outsidein Restaurant is the perfect place for romantic rendezvous, discreet business dining or afternoon tea parties. Popular with glossy local gourmands and an international crowd, the dining room is decked out with contemporary chandeliers, designer wallpaper and dove-grey sofa seating, giving the space an intimate atmosphere. The Talk Bar is ideal for pre-dinner cocktails, and The Outsidein's bold modern British menu ��� which is created using locally sourced produce - is artfully presented and moreish. We adore the black treacle salmon with chilli and peanuts; the calves livers with pancetta and potato foam; and the Granny Smith bavarois with walnuts and cumin for pudding.
