Marygreen Manor August 18 2014

With its timber framed construction, ornate fireplaces, oak panel detail and heavily carved four posters, the Marygreen Manor just off the M25 at Brentwood wears its history on its sleeve. Settlements on this site date from the 13th century, and the estate has associations with Catherine of Aragon, the first wife of Henry VIII and, somewhat later, the ancestors of the Wright brothers, the pioneers in flight.

The quality of the coffee matches the high standards of the food. Appointed towards the end of last year, Café du Monde’s service and quality coffee has already struck a chord with management. The hotel uses Continental and Decaffeinated coffee served from classic chrome and glass cafetières in the Tudors restaurant and stainless steel cafetières for banqueting and conference service. In the bar area, Café du Monde has installed a La Spaziale EK2 compact espresso machine using Grand Cru beans for speciality coffee service.
