The Inn at Stratford Hall invites you to a very special French Dinner & Wine Pairing as we unveil our newly renovated kitchen. Guests will enjoy expertly selected wines with each course of an exquisitely prepared French meal. Benedicte Merian, a native of Normandy, France, and The Inn at Stratford Hall’s own Executive Chef, has designed the evening’s menu.
Your dining experience will include five courses with wine and some discussion about each pairing for the all-inclusive price of $145 per person.
A special lodging rate will be available to guests who would like to stay in the guest houses overnight. $130 per couple will include a room in our comfortable guest houses, a plantation breakfast, and tour tickets (for two) of the Great House.
Seating for the dinner is limited to 50 people and reservations are required. Please contact us by March 1, 2013, at 804-493-1966 or by email to reserve a seat for this unique opportunity.
