Ufford Park - Winter 2019

The tree is up and hot chocolate and mince pies have been added to the menu, which only means one thing - it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We have had a very exciting year at Ufford Park and as we enter the  festive season, there’s lots to celebrate. So curl up by the fire, pour yourself a glass of mulled wine and have a read of our latest news.


If you have dined in The Park Restaurant recently, you may have seen a new face. We are delighted to announce that Rosario D’Angelo has joined the team as restaurant and bar manager just in time for the festive season. With several years’ experience in the catering industry and a heap of ideas and enthusiasm, we are excited to see how he settles into his role over the next few months. There is still time to book for December, so celebrate the lead-up to Christmas with us and be one of the first to enjoy our new a la carte menu.


As the countdown continues and your to-do-list gets longer, why not take some time out and enjoy a festive meal with friends and family in The Park Bar and Restaurant? To see what’s on the menu this December you can download our festive lunch and festive afternoon tea menus from our website. You can also book a table online.

Our Christmas Day lunch is now sold out, but there are plenty of other ways you can celebrate with us. There are even limited places still available for our Wizarding party nights.

Put your feet up this Boxing Day

Entertaining on Christmas Day? Let us do the work on Boxing Day. There are still limited spaces available for our Boxing Day buffet lunch. Come along and spend time with friends and family while listening to local saxophonist, Mr Tim play some festive favourites. Tickets cost £35.00 per adult and £19.50 per child (aged between 5 and 12 years). And the best bit? We’ll even do the washing up!

Party with the family this New Year

2020 is almost upon us so if you haven’t made plans for New Year’s Eve yet, why not come and join us for our family disco?

See in the new year with the whole family and enjoy a buffet dinner while you party the night away. Tickets cost £39.00 per adult and £25.00 per child.


We are having an open weekend soon for you to come and have a look around our newly-refurbished gym and fitness facilities - keep an eye on our website for the date. The fitness team will be on hand to give you advice, show you around and answer any questions you may have. In the meantime, visit our website to find out more about our gym memberships, classes, including our new spin class, and pool facilities.

HIGH FIVE with Hattie Clarke 

To celebrate the completion of our gym refurbishment, we spoke to Health Club Manager, Hattie Clarke this month to find out more about her role at Ufford Park.

What do you like most about your role?

I love the fact that every day is different. It’s also a very rewarding job. Being a part of someone’s fitness journey and helping them to achieve their goals is a great feeling and one I will never tire of. 

What would you say to someone who is considering join a gym?

Do it. Your first gym session is always the hardest and although it seems daunting at first, you will feel great afterwards. Also, bring a friend or family member for moral support. It’s always better to train with a partner because you can motivate each other and you will find it more enjoyable.

What has been the highlight of your job so far?

I was recently put in charge of the gym refurbishment so I was able to choose the paint colour and décor for the gym and fitness studios. I am delighted to have been given this responsibility and I have received several compliments from members on how great it looks, so I am really pleased.

Describe your job in three words

Rewarding, exciting, challenging.


As we approach the end of another great year, we would like thank you all for your continued support throughout 2019. We hope to see you all over the festive season and would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


We hope to welcome you here soon.
