The Dinner hosted by Raymond Blanc

Embark on an unforgettable gastronomic journey. Join the luxurious Belmond Northern Belle train for dinner prepared on board by Michelin-starred Chef Raymond Blanc.

Settle into your plush seat with a glass of chilled champagne accompanied by exquisite canapés. Your table is set with pristine white linen and gleaming glassware, ready for your culinary sojourn through the British countryside.

Soon the first dish in Raymond Blanc’s spectacular five-course dinner is served, accompanied by a flight of wine chosen by our sommelier. Added pizzazz is provided by onboard entertainers.

Relax and soak up the views while enjoying the convivial company. Take the opportunity to explore the individual carriages, each named after a British stately home or castle and decorated with magnificent handcrafted flourishes.

This is the ultimate indulgent treat for you and a loved one, or an ideal gift for foodie friends.

Chef Raymond Blanc OBE

One of the UK’s most celebrated chefs, Raymond Blanc is renowned for his passion for seasonal, organic produce. The charismatic Frenchman was talking about sustainability more than two decades ago, long before it became the ‘mot du jour’. His restaurant at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons has held two Michelin stars for over 30 years, a staggering achievement. His modern French cuisine makes full use of the delicious vegetables, herbs, mushrooms and heritage fruits nurtured in the hotel’s gardens and orchards.
