The word ‘Langar’, as well as being the name of a Nottinghamshire village, is also Sanskrit for ‘a place where pilgrims receive nourishment’. Fitting, because Langar Hall is a jewel in the Midlands’ crown. Sitting in the Vale of Belvoir, this apricot-coloured Georgian country house nestles in parkland next to a beautiful church.
Langar Hall was built in 1837 and over the past 28 years has evolved into a country hotel and restaurant without losing the cosy feel of a family home. It’s a Pandora’s box of charm and hospitality: the décor and artefacts arranged throughout are a mix of new and old: sculpture, art and furnishings gathered over the years. Each of the 12 rooms is unique.
Enjoy the light of the Garden Room for afternoon tea, or spill on to the terrace and soak up the gardens during light lunches. The Library offers privacy and the Indian Room has seen many a good party.
The pillared dining room is the heart of Langar, where locally sourced or home-grown seasonal food is served, such as twice baked cheese soufflé, and lamb from the estate. Simple food cooked to perfection in an English style that matches the ambience, not without Langar’s customary quirk. During the season their game dishes are sublime and the wine cellar is extensive.
If you are looking for a slice of nirvana in this busy, modern society then Langar Hall is worth the pilgrimage on your special occasion.
