I have dropped this in as an extra article today because it won’t last long and I would prefer readers to get them.
The DoubleTree hotel in Bristol (Cadbury House) is hosting an evening with Marco Pierre White on Tuesday 13th February. The cost is 50,000 Hilton Honors points for TWO people.
The hotel is described as “the South West’s finest four-star boutique hotel and spa.”
This is what you get:
“The original “bad boy” of cooking is coming to DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Bristol South – Cadbury House! Legendary chef, Marco Pierre White, will be visiting our the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill at the hotel on Tuesday, February 13th. This unique event gives you the opportunity to meet the man behind books such as Marco Made Easy and The Great British Feast. You and your guest will be treated to a glass of fizz on arrival as well as a jaw dropping three course meal, cooked by our chefs .
This package for two (2) includes:
-Meet & Greet with Marco Pierre White
-Three course meal at Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill
-One cookbook signed by Marco Pierre White
-One (1) night stay at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Bristol South – Cadbury House on Thursday, February 13, 2018, including breakfast
-Glass of Fizz upon arrival
Please note this package does not include rail or airfare.”
Given that you get a hotel stay included plus dinner for two plus the ‘soft’ stuff, it is a good use of 50,000 Hilton Honors points.
Don’t forget that the new Aerospace Bristol museum – which includes Concorde – has just opened so you could tie in a visit to that. I would be keen myself if it wasn’t half term.
