Farlam Hall

Brampton, Penrith (Nr.), Cumbria, CA8 2NG
Beautifully situated on a grass mound, and with its own medieval-style garden. This Victorian County House Hotel, set behind an ornamental lake, has its origins in the 16th century; but its beginnings have been swallowed-up by elegant 19th century additions.

It's run by the Quinion and Stevenson families, and Barry Quinion is in charge of the stoves. His food offers 3 choices at each stage, and these change on a daily basis - and there is only one sitting.

Starters always include a soup, perhaps the likes of 'Watercress and Pear' or 'Warm Herb Croûte'. Other offerings might include 'Terrine of Pheasant with Herbs and Pistachios and Plum Chutney'. The starter is followed by a sorbet.

Mains might include the likes of 'Medallion of Beef Fillet' (with varying sauces); 'Sautéed King Scallops in Saffron Oil' or 'Slow-cooked Spiced Pork with Caramelised Apples'.

Desserts such as 'Honey, Lemon and Pistachio Mousse' or 'Chocolate Brandy Pot' and excellent English cheeses complete the picture.

A Vegetarian menu is available by prior arrangement.

The friendly service is carried out by ladies in long skirts. Smart dress preferred, certainly no jeans. No mobile phones.
