The Restaurant at Danesfield House

Henley Road, Marlow, Buckinghamshire, SL7 2EY
Find this excellent hotel/restaurant, set in over 60 acres of in a country house, high above the Thames. The style is mock-Elizabethan, and this is continued inside the building; where the interior designer Anouska Hempel has been careful to keep things understated.

From the culinary viewpoint there are two restaurants. 'The Orangery', which they describe as a brasserie, but which in fact is an extremely-comfortable dining room with a slightly-less elaborate menu than the 'Oak Room' - which is our feature here.

The Oak Room is a formal dining room, with oak panels from floor to ceiling, top-quality table ware and crisp white napery. The cooking here is serious.

Dishes are given single word titles, so you might begin with 'Scallop' - (seared hand-dived scallops, Jerusalem Artichoke Purée, Apple Jelly, Grain Mustard Ice Cream); 'Terrine' - (terrine of squab pigeon, comice pear, celeriac, foie gras, salted almonds) or 'Chicken' - (confit chicken oysters, slow-boiled hen's eggs, cockscomb, mustard dressing, dandelion and truffle).

To maybe be followed by 'Brill' - (poached fillet of brill, wild garlic leaf panna cotta, fresh peas, feves, morels, confit new seasons garlic); 'Sweetbread' - (sautéed veal sweetbread, frogs legs, cauliflower purée, chocolate oil, anchovy foam' or 'Beef' - (roast fillet of beef, horseradish gnocchi, shallot and horseradish purée, ox tongue, chervil, red wine sauce).

Desserts continue the same theme, with 'Ovaltine' - (ovaltine panna cotta, malt parfait, cocoa jelly, bitter chocolate marquise and condensed milk ice cream' and 'Strawberry' - (wild strawberry mousse, strawberry ice cream, crystalised nettle and nettle pavlova).

The more savoury-toothed can choose from their excellent selection of English and French cheeses.

While the menu style might irritate some, there's no denying the high standard of the food offered.
