Ruth ‘Country House Rescue’ Watson & her husband David bring you a retreat for all seasons: summer drinks on the terrace give way to weekend papers in front of a roaring log fire, & the
food keeps pace with a degree of seasonal flexibility. The result could be a lunch of potted brown shrimps followed by Orford-landed skate with black butter, spinach & new potatoes, sautéed
lamb’s kidneys on toast or steak & kidney pie with mash or chunky chips. Haunch of venison with gratin dauphinoise or a fish stew packed with cod, bream, mussels, plaice & squid could
appear at dinner. Factor in an enticing wine list topped up with lots of bargain bin ends & a choice of super bedrooms, & you have a great place to eat & stay – less than two hours’
drive from London.
