The Falcon Hotel, Uppingham

Photographing Food at The Falcon Hotel, Uppingham

The Falcon Hotel, Uppingham is a stunning 16th Century coaching inn that is situated in the pride of Uppingham’s historic Market Place. The hotel is just four miles from the shores of Rutland Water, in the heart of the natural splendours of Rutland.

The hotel has a superb traditional restaurant, a comfortable brasserie lounge, a cosy bar offering traditional ales, and beautiful oak beamed private dining rooms. In the winter their cosy wood-burning fires welcome you, whilst in the summer the idyllic gardens are perfect for a spot of afternoon tea.

As part of refreshing their menu for the Autumn, James asked me to come along and get some up-to-date, professional, images of a selection of new dishes. I think you’ll agree, they all look really tasty! The talented chefs at the Falcon hotel use a range of locally sourced, fresh, ingredients. Which would you order?

Crab, prawn and avocado stack – mango salsa and herb oil

Onion Bhaji – Lentil fritters, dhal, coriander & lime yoghurt with tomato concasse

Slow cooked duck leg – duck and sloe gin bon bons, braised red cabbage, broccoli and a rich lentil cassoulet

Slow cooked pork belly – herb mash, apple puree braised red cabbage, seasonal greens and a rich jus

Rhubarb and custard cheesecake – poached rhubarb and meringue shards

Dark chocolate and orange mousse – served with homemade shortbread

Uppingham – A Market Town

Uppingham is a market town in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England, about 6 miles (10 km) south of the county town, Oakham.

The weekly market is held on Fridays. The Market Place is transformed once a year in November into the only fatstock show still to be held in temporary penning in a traditional market town. The first recorded show was in 1889. In 2011, 140 sheep, 24 pigs and 20 cattle were entered. The event attracts farmers from all over the area who exhibit their prize livestock and toast their acquaintances afterwards in The Falcon Hotel.

Local attractions include; Barnsdale Gardens, Rockingham Castle, Rutland Water, Fineshade Woods, Eyebrook reservoir and Burghley house.

The Falcon Hotel also serves as a beautiful place to get married – you already know they have great food, so why not contact their wedding co-ordinator – also, if you’re looking for an excellent wedding photographer then I can wholeheartedly recommend BGS Weddings (mainly because it’s me)
