Square Meal Review of Whatley Manor ?

“No expense spared” is an understatement when it comes to describing this dramatically renovated 1920s hunting lodge – now a favoured weekend chill-out for City execs and foodies alike. Formal evening meals are served in the elegantly appointed Dining Room (two Michelin stars), where Martin Burge continues to fine-tune his culinary style, creating dishes that are complex, overtly modern and utterly sublime. Hand-dived scallops are served with crispy bacon, courgette purée and pickled cockles, while main courses might feature pork tenderloin dressed with black pudding and liquorice cassonade alongside a slow-braised pig’s trotter or pan-fried fillet in light bouillabaisse consommé with deep-fried cod cheeks and parmesan rouille – brilliant timing, brilliant technique. Desserts also offer thrills galore – witness Gariguette strawberries set in their own jelly with yoghurt sorbet, crispy almond cake and lime meringue. For something more casual, try Le Mazot – Whatley Manor’s Alpine chalet-style brasserie.

Wine Notes: Wine List: This large, interesting list has a solid French backbone, but is well supported by New World offerings, particularly from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the US. It also offers a rare opportunity to try Swiss wines in the UK. A decent selection of half-bottles encourages experimentation. Best Buy White 2008 Life from Stone Sauvignon Blanc, Springfield Estate, Robertson £33.00 Best Buy Red 2005 Les Challeys Saint-Joseph, Delas Freres, Rhone, France £38.00

    Samphire and Salsify :: The Dining Room at Whatley Manor

    Whatley Manor is a manor house hotel and spa based in the Cotswolds and it’s home to The Dining Room, which has held two Michelin stars since 2009. The restaurant is only open for dinner from Wednesday – Sunday and never for lunch which seemed such a shame as we couldn’t take in the full beauty of the surroundings as we arrived in darkness. We were first taken to the lounge area for drinks and canapés, which was all very pleasant. There was a roaring fire, comfortable armchairs and free wifi – hoorah! We were then taken through to the dining room, which wasn’t the most modern of spaces; the colour scheme was a bit...
