Blandy’s Restaurant in Audley Inglewood, the luxury retirement village in Kintbury, Berkshire, has been awarded an AA Rosette in culinary excellence

Set in the beautiful Inglewood House and surrounded by scenic gardens, Blandy’s at Inglewood is only the second retirement village restaurant to receive the prestigious accolade, the first being Redwood Bistro at Anchor’s Bishopstoke Park in Hampshire.

Gert Pienaar, the Head Chef at Blandy’s Inglewood, brings a wealth of experience including the Vineyard at Stockcross and Brocket Hall Estate which have both been awarded AA Rosettes.

His success at Blandy’s has led him to also be appointed the Group Head Chef at Audley.

In this role, he oversees the restaurant standards across Audley’s 10 operating restaurants.

“I am so proud of the team at Blandy’s at Inglewood,” he said.

“To be recognised for the culinary excellence we aim to produce in the restaurant has made me extremely proud.

We are looking forward to welcoming many owners and locals over the Christmas period”

He and his passionate and talented team offer owners and their guests a sophisticated menu of fresh, locally sourced, seasonal dishes enjoyed in an ornate and plush setting.

“We are truly honoured to have received this award which highlights the quality of the food and the exceptional service delivered daily in Blandy’s restaurant,” said Audley Group Managing Director, Paul Morgan, “especially as we are only the second retirement village operator to ever receive the award.

It’s worth the visit to experience a truly memorable dining experience.”

This month, owners will be able to experience the delicious Christmas menu.

The restaurant is open seven days a week from 9am to 9pm.

Audley Inglewood is home to 91 retirement apartments, and offers state-of-the-art facilities including a health club, swimming pool and library.

Alongside this, flexible care is available if needed, provided by Audley’s CQC regulated care provider Audley Care. Both the Audley Club and Audley Care are also available to members of the local community.
