Hotel in Camberley

The four-star Macdonald Frimley Hall Hotel & Spa, near Farnborough has retained its top five star food hygiene rating from Surrey Heath Borough Council for the second year in succession in recognition of the high standards maintained by its kitchen brigade.

Run by the Food Standards Agency in partnership with local authorities, the scheme gives ratings on a scale from zero, suggesting urgent improvement is necessary, to five, which means it's very good. The key aim is to help consumers choose where to eat.

To qualify for its top rating, the hotel was inspected by a food safety officer from the local council who looked at how well it was meeting hygiene laws by checking its food handling methods, condition and cleanliness of the buildings and procedures to ensure the food is safe to eat.

Distinctive, modern British cuisine is served in the elegant double AA-rosette awarded Linden Restaurant. Bright by day and intimately candlelit by evening, it's decorated in fresh and contemporary natural colours, while retaining a traditional welcoming feel. 

In keeping with the Macdonald Hotels passionate approach to food quality, sourcing the best ingredients available ranging from beef reared on natural Scottish pastures, outdoor reared pork and free range chickens to market fresh wild fish mainly from UK waters and Fairtrade coffee. Salmon is cured by John Ross Jr (Aberdeen) and smoked traditionally in 150 year old red-brick kilns; John Ross is also Freedom Food and Soil Association approved. Organic suppliers are sourced for vegetables and dairy products where possible.

Macdonald Frimley Hall Hotel & Spa also boasts a fine cellar with wines from across the globe ensuring a good choice of vintages to complement the excellent food. 

The classic, Victorian manor house with its stylish décor is set in four acres of peaceful, private gardens and woodland. Open to both non-residents and overnight guests, the Linden Restaurant is ideal for breakfast, lunch and evening get-togethers, romantic occasions, or Sunday lunch for the whole family.
