Valentine's Day 2016

Valentine's Day or the Feast of St. Valentine has been an iconic celebration since the Middle Ages and has always been a time to celebrate romantic love through gifts, flowers, confectionary and greeting cards.

For 2016, Valentine's Day will be celebrated at Ancaster Mill all weekend long from February 12-14, with a special Valentine's dance on Friday night. Hurry to book your reservation and surprise that someone special with an evening they won't soon forget.

Our Valentine's Weekend Menu for 2016

We have chosen to honour many Valentine's traditions on our menu by featuring ingredients from aphrodisiacs such as oysters or passion fruit to items that celebrate life and love such as chocolate and champagne.

Explore some of our Valentine's ingredients:


Black Truffles

Truffles are a luxury in the culinary world. Their legendary aphrodisiac appeal is not only due to their rarity, it is their aroma that conjures lust and desire. Black truffles are said to have the most concentrated aphrodisiac potency. 

Valentine's Menu:

Craft Cut Beef Tenderloin
slow-roasted carrots, red pearl onion jam,
dauphine potatoes, black truffle jus



Is it the avocado’s sensuous shape or the rich flavour? Either way high levels of vitamin E will boost your energy level. 

Valentine's Menu:

Avocado & Grapefruit Salad
winter greens, poached pear,
grapefruit vinaigrette



We won’t go into details about the birds and the bees, but honey is a symbol of procreation. It contains boron, which regulates estrogen and testosterone levels and provides a natural energy boost. 

Valentine's Menu:

Honey-Glazed Chicken Breast
sautéed broccoli, roast chicken risotto,
toasted almond jus
