Show your partner how much you care with our romantic dinner ideas for two to enjoy at home
If you are in the mood for romance, there is no better way to show your loved one how much they mean to you than by sharing an intimate meal. While it's nice to go out and be wined and dined, childcare commitments or even travel requirements, when you both feel like having a glass or two, can often get in the way.
The good news is, you don't have to go out to romance your partner. With the right meal ideas, you can have a gourmet dining experience from the comfort of your own home.
Romantic dinner ideas for two at home - how to set the scene
So you've decided to have a fancy night in. How do you create an atmosphere that's going to impress your partner? Here are some of our top tips to help you.
Spruce up the room
No one wants to enjoy a romantic meal with the laundry still drying in the corner or while staring at yesterday's dirty dishes. So make sure you give the room you plan to eat in a good tidy-up before you begin.
Get the lighting right
When it comes to creating a romantic atmosphere, lighting is everything. So turn the lights down low and light a couple of candles for a more intimate, cosy vibe.
Pick music to match the mood
You might be in the party zone and want a wild night in with your loved one, or you might want a genuinely relaxed evening. Whatever you are up for, make sure you pick some background music that matches the mood you are going for. Extra points for picking something you know your partner loves rather than your own favourites!
Spend less time in the kitchen and more time with them
It's hard to be romantic when you are clattering around in the kitchen panicking over some overcooked rice. Romance is about connection and communication. So why not leave the cooking to us, and have all your dishes delivered to your door, so that you can spend minimal time prepping your meal and more with the one you adore.
Our favourite romantic meal ideas for two
Succulent, perfectly cooked lamb rump is a real treat. It's satisfying, warming, and comforting but can be served elegantly to really elevate the dish. We like ours alongside Jersey Royal potato terrine and fresh English peas.
There is something undeniably romantic about seafood. It can remind you of sunset walks or crashing ocean waves. Our Chalk Stream Trout is topped with Lardo, rosemary, and spices and served with crushed baby potatoes and fresh sea herbs to produce an earthy, buttery, delicate dish that is sure to impress.
Paneer Butter Masala
Spice up your life and turn up the heat with a mouthwatering masala perfect for vegetarians. With spices, creamy yogurt, and a butter masala gravy served alongside the fluffiest rice, pariahs, and a crunchy, tangy salad of pickled red onions and coriander, you'll be clamouring for more.
Soft, melt-in-your-mouth cheesecake is a perfect after-dinner treat. A delightfully crumbly, buttery biscuit base is layered up with creamy, sweet cheese filling. We like to top ours with rhubarb jelly and serve with a rhubarb terrine, meringues, and rhubarb carpaccio, naturally!
You can't go wrong with a banoffee pie; it's sweet, indulgent, and decadent - just as a good pudding should be. Enjoy yours with a caramelised toffee and banana sauce and a crunchy contrasting biscuit crumble for a delight in textures and flavours.
Cheese and Biscuits
To finish off the meal in style, why not serve some high-quality cheese? We've got just the thing with our Tunworth cheese, marinated figs, and buttermilk biscuits. So pour yourself that final glass of wine and enjoy.
