Find this smart and ambitious restaurant in the luxurious hotel of the same name. It's under the same ownership as The London Dorchester, and has been called a country cousin.
So expect formal service, plenty of unannounced nibbles – plus firm prices, for all but teetotallers.
The kitchen offers a menu that follows the seasons, but Spring starters such as 'Duck Liver with Yorkshire Rhubarb, Almonds & Parkin'; 'Exmoor Caviar with Cornish Crab, Yuzu & Cucumber'; 'Cauliflower Dumplings with Mushroom, Lovage & Truffle' and 'New Seasons Asparagus with Cured Salmon, Smoked Lardo & Bergamot' set the style.
Perhaps followed by 'Wild Sea Bass with Squid, Smoked Eel, Lettuce & Sea Urchin'; 'Jersey Royals with Leeks & Truffles' 'Spring Lamb with Sweetbreads, Artichoke & Aubergine' and 'Earl Stonham Farm Wagyu Beef with Braised Tail, Tongue & Avocado Salad' amongst the list of mains.
Splendidly-presented desserts might include 'Blood Orange & White Chocolate with Honeycomb' & 'Crème Fraiche with Caramelised Almonds, Granny Smith & Calvados'.
If wishing to eat well, but with less ostentation and a brasserie-style menu, The Barn Restaurant might be just the ticket. See their website for details.
