At The Arundell, we are celebrating the new year with a selection of events. We are offering a number of packages leading up to the new year, including days to enjoy both the comforts of the hotel, as well as all that our location on the Devon/Cornwall border has to offer.
On the eve of 2022, we will be holding a black tie dinner and Jazz event in The restaurant. Following champagne and welcome drinks in the Arundell bar, and reading room, guests will enjoy a fantastic seven course menu, created by our head chef Ashley Wright and prepared together with his talented kitchen team. Dining in the wonderful Arundell restaurant, guests will enjoy a range of dishes using the very best fresh ingredients, all sourced locally in Devon & Cornwall.
To complement the celebrations will be a full evening long performance by Jim McAllister (vocals) and the Edgar Macias Quartet - Edgar Macias (keys), Chris Bowden (Sax), Miles Levin (on drums) and Tom Clarke Hill (bass).
Over the last 15 years Jim has sold out his amazing one-man tribute show to Sinatra and the great Crooners, both internationally and in the UK. Critically acclaimed as the No 1 tribute to Sinatra, he has worked with many big bands including the Syd Lawrence Orchestra and completed a 3 year tour of the globe with the world famous Cunard Line. With all the charm and charismatic stylings of the ultimate Crooner, Jim really does bring the party alive Sinatra Style! On the bass, Californian- Tom Clarke-Hill aka Tony the Tiger (he’s the voice of Kellogg’s Frosties) is a world class double and electric bassist who has performed with Art Farmer, Tal Farlow, Dolly Parton, Luther Vandross and many more.
On drums, Miles Levin has worked with many established musicians including Paul Dunmall and Art Themen, and has performed at numerous music festivals including Glastonbury and the London Jazz Festival.
Guests staying the night can expect a delicious choice of hot and cold dishes from our breakfast menu on the morning of New Year's day. Requests can be made in advance through our head desk for a number of suggested activities, including walks on Dartmoor, horse riding, or just relax in and around our hotel.
