Squaremeal Review of Auberge du Lac ?

Nestled at the heart of Brocket Hall estate (an 18th-century country retreat turned gold-standard hospitality venue), Auberge du Lac occupies a quaint one-time hunting lodge overlooking an ornamental lake (“a must to wander around”, notes a fan). Inside, friendly, obliging staff usher guests into a mini-maze of atmospheric rooms, before presenting them with a seasonally inspired menu that’s a joy to peruse. Chef Marcus McGuinness earned his spurs at two-Michelin-starred Hibiscus in Mayfair and it shows: the food may cost a pretty penny, but it’s great value when you consider such “beautifully presented” and “consistently excellent” delights as lobster ravioli with endive, caviar, pea and coconut velouté or rabbit ‘presse’ with cherries, pistachio and foie gras. Next, loin of English lamb might arrive with sweetbreads, baby leeks, roast heritage carrot, beets and smoked mash, while piscophiles might veer towards Cornish halibut with pearl barley, brown shrimp, crab broth and charred lettuce. For dessert, check out the ‘lemon meringue’ with violet ice cream, and don’t miss the spectacular cheese trolley. Want to stay? Rooms are available at Melbourne Lodge, just a short stroll away.
