House of Feasts

Boy can this guy cook – just ask Mary Berry or the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! House of Feasts chef-patron Damian Wawrzyniak cooked for the royal couple on their five-day tour of Poland and Germany, and baked babka with Mary Berry on BBC Two.

At his restaurant, House of Feasts near Peterborough, Damian shows why BBC Good Food named him a Top 10 UK Food Pioneer by creating wonderful ingredient combinations and introducing diners to some of his Polish favourites. Expect sumptuous food elegantly presented using local produce and homegrown fruit and vegetables.

On our second visit for lunch, this time on a Sunday with a group of four, we were treated to some gems including a lovely aged beef tartare served with pickled mushrooms and red onions marinated in blackcurrants, and a traditional Polish smalec served with sourdough and pickles. Our mains included a succulent half of chicken, brined and roasted, and served with Fenland potatoes and Cambridgeshire vegetables. Then there was hake with black risotto, pecans and marinated green and yellow beans. Desserts were equally appealing, such as a beautifully cooked pear infused with orange peel and served with peanut powder, white chocolate creme and a dark chocolate tuile.

Damian’s new book, ‘I Am A Cook’, will be out shortly.

Visit House of Feasts once and you will keep going back for more!

    Great Atmosphere, unusual food, tasty pickles & bread!We went to try House of Feasts mainly due to friends recommendations, we loved the food & ambience. Unusual flavours and completely new dishes became one of our favourites! Especially Smalec, Pierogi & Pork Knuckle were our favourites. Desserts were also very interested, my husband loved Pear with Surprise, which was packed with flavours. We definitely will be back soon, this time with friends and family.

    Great food, but misled by websiteLovely meal, but went expecting to choose from the a la carte menu, which according to the website was offered Fridays and Saturdays, only to be presented with either a 5 or 6 course set menu, priced at £45 or £60 respectively, with no choice of courses. A tad pricey when compared to similar quality establishments in the area. No aperitifs or cocktails on the drinks menu, although we found out when paying that spirits were available. Limited but acceptable selection of wines, and although there was a choice of 2 local beers on the drinks menu, neither was available. All in all we enjoyed the meal, food was different from our usual cuisine, and was tasty and well presented. We would happily return, but only if we knew we could choose from the a la carte menu. This restaurant shows potential, good luck Chef Damian.

        So HOF, can you clarify your comment, please? Does “we do have information on our website about possible ‘daily changes to menus and dishes’” mean that the whole of the a la carte menu might not be available, despite what it says on your website? That seems a very significant “change to your menu” ! I too would be very disappointed to arrive and find that the whole a la carte menu was “off” when the website indicated that it should be available.

        Dear Michael,

        Thank you for your interest in HOF restaurant.
        I would like to clarify that our menu could change, however we always inform our customers on our website or social media whenever there will be any changes at least day or two before the change.
        Moreover, changes does not mean that the whole a la carte menu might not be available. Sometimes we might change one dish from the menu for special of the day, but if we do change anything we always inform our feasters/followers.

        We always serve what is on our website, but you can also follow us on our Facebook page where we upload our current menu too. https://www.facebook.com/HouseOfFeasts/

        Hope I’ve answered your question, and hopefully see you soon!
        HOF Team,
