SquareMeal Review of Paris House



Located in a historic, Tudor-style mansion in the stunning grounds of Woburn Abbey, Paris House is a Bedforshire gem with a fascinating back story, an impressive art collection and award-winning food. Run and owned by executive chef Phil Fanning and his wife since 2010, the restaurant is traditional in nature, with white tablecloths, upholstered oak chairs, smartly dressed, professional waiters and bucolic views, but the food is up-to-the-minute modern. Fanning’s six, eight and ten-course tasting menus are truly global in inspiration – a succession of thrillingly presented dishes that might include tandoori-spiced rabbit, crispy pork with pickled ginger and kimchi, turbot with choux farci, and parsnip panna cotta all in one sitting. On Sundays, a mini degustation takes the place of the traditional roast. If you can, splash out on the matching wine flights, which are expertly chosen from the venue’s extensive cellar.

We had the chefs table for lunch. An experience I'd highly recommended. The interaction with the Head Chef was excellent and it was a pleasure to see him and his team work. We were made to feel welcome and comfortable from the outset. I made a couple of requests of the waiters before arriving and all were met as required. The menu was created for us and this felt really special. The wine was matched to the food perfectly. The food was well conceived and well executed. The foie gras mousse beautifully light but still full of flavour. Each dish had strong flavours and garnishes that added to the layer of flavours. I highly recommend Paris House and the chefs table. Great experience.

Iregularly fine dine but this has to be one of my worst experiences.70s style food even a modern twist couldnt pull together.The cold plates tasted very pre-prepared overchilled straight from the fridgewith anaemic iappearance.The warm dishes unbalanced with flavours to resemble a forgettable school dinner.Six course menu id rather forget.
