Kelly Andrews reviews The Georgian
The latest addition to the Coppa Club family, The Georgian, opened its doors on 3rd May. Located in the heart of the Surrey Hills in leafy Haselmere, this is the 10th property to join the portfolio of clubhouses and is the brand’s third hotel location.
County Wedding Magazines’ deputy managing editor Kelly Andrews went along to check out the delicious food fare on offer: “The Grade II listed building feels instantly warm and welcoming, and when combined with the Coppa Club’s own brand of stylish and modern décor it’s definitely a place I wanted to spend time in. Like the atmosphere, the welcome was also warm and I couldn’t fault the staff who were wonderfully charming and attentive. Settled at our comfy table by the the window, I was able to admire the laid-back covered garden terrace, complete with a firepit, and dining pods on the lawn. It’s just as easy to imagine balmy summer nights here accompanied by friends and a glass of Pimms, as it is cosy winter evenings snuggled around the heaters. I was already feeling pretty envious of Haselmere’s residents, for whom this community gem is on the doorstep.
“The menu is focused on European, British and Mediterranean dishes, and I ordered the buttermilk fried chicken with chilli mayo small plate for starters, followed by the bucatini carbonara – hands down the best carbonara I’ve ever eaten! While my eyes may have admittedly been bigger than my belly when I ordered the truffle, pecorino fries, it nevertheless had to be done! The basque cheesecake with orange crème fraîche was for dessert and was absolutely delicious – the perfect end to a delightful meal. The highlight? This has to be the incredible cocktails. I got to sample both the innovative alcoholic and non-alcoholic options in the shape of the tiramisu and popstar martinis. The latter being a booze-free version of the much-loved pornstar martini. I loved them so much I’m sorely tempted to attempt a recreation at home!
“If you’re tying the knot in the area The Georgian, Coppa Club is definitely a place to look out for, whether it be a date night, a wedding-planning lunch with the girls, relaxed drinks curled up in front of the lounge’s log burner, a super-stylish hotel for your wedding guests, or a rehearsal dinner in the private dining room.”
