Malone E-Zines -  July 1st 2010.

With our award-winning Head Chef, Dean Butler, 2009 N.Ireland Head Chef of  the year,  we are renowned for good food.   In addition to the excellent, local produce and award winning kitchen team, we’ve encouraged all our staff to embrace our love of food.  They have done this whole-heartedly and we have successfully run internal cooking competitions in which staff have participated in such as Come dine with me and Masterchef over the last 12 months!!!

One member of our staff, Sarah Shekleton has taken the dream of winning £10,000 a step further and has taken her love of food to the next level  by competing in ‘Britain’s Best Dish’.  Sarah has successfully got through and is heading to London this week to compete.  We wish Sarah the very best of luck and we will all be cheering for her!!! 

Read more on our next Ezine or signup to our newly launched Facebook Page where Sarah will be writing about her experience on ‘Britain’s Best Dish’ as well as weekly cooking tips and award winning dishes for you to cook at home from all our team! And don’t worry, you don’t need to be a Master Chef just yet as we’ll give you all the tips to make the perfect dish!

Britain’s Best Dish is an annual cooking competition to find the country's most delicious starter, main course and dessert. They are looking for amateur chefs to cook their signature dishes for a panel of judges. The overall winner receives the ultimate accolade of ‘Britain’s Best Dish’ and takes home a £10,000.


At Malone Lodge we are known for being a hotel where all the family can come to relax and enjoy our luxurious surroundings.  Whether it is at a private family event, a meal in our award winning Green Door Restaurant or just the chance for the family to catch up and enjoy great food at our Sunday Carvery without anyone having to cook!! With the recent addition of our grand piano in our sumptuous lobby, it is a great way to spend your Sunday.
