Squaremeal Review of The Samling ?

Set in its own 67-acre estate overlooking Windermere, this white-painted house immediately signals its ambitions with a striking modern interior and vivid displays of contemporary art – although the mood is “discreet and intimate”, with ultra-professional service tending to “every need and request”. The cooking is fiercely on-trend, with new Nordic nuances and a larder of seasonal ingredients given full rein in “top-end” dishes such as ‘snail trail’ (veal sweetbreads served in bone marrow, snails braised in red wine, watercress, garlic purée and horseradish snow). Elsewhere, scallop carpaccio appears alongside seaweed tea, grouse breast is smoked over ‘fallen leaves and pine’, and roast Middle White pork appears as a ‘sandwich’ with red cabbage, onion and truffle cream sauce. To conclude, the Michelin-starred brigade might serve up a deconstructed Black Forest gâteau or dehydrated muscovado sponge cake with coconut, honeycomb and coffee. The wine list garners awards galore, thanks to its diversity and choice of growers. With a new development kitchen now in full swing, plus a progressive garden and seed exchange project, we expect interesting times ahead.
