Stepping back a few centuries often means a formal less relaxed experience. Nevertheless on arrival a good-looking building was a pleasure to behold and gorgeous gardens were enhanced by sun on bank holiday Monday.
Even if the chef has had a strong foothold for almost quarter of a century, cooking is an obvious vocation of which he will perhaps never tire. He came up with a mix of accomplished classics, some made interestingly modern without a puff of foam in sight, which pleased our group, except for one under-seasoned starter. He did wonders with beetroot, featuring differently 3 times, and pork was the unanimously gratifying choice for main.
Though service was blunder free, the staff on duty that day seemed a trifle inexperienced.
Generally enjoyable, so we’d all return, especially for a bit of ‘Old Spot’ and a peek at the grounds.
