SquareMeal Review of
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.
