Find this good restaurant in this comfortable hotel, which is set set in mature gardens off what was built as a private house in the 1920's.
The restaurant is set in two panelled rooms - one in antique oak, the other in polished walnut - so there's a clubby atmosphere.
On the food front, an autumn snapshot brought 'Cider-Cured Salmon with Pickled Samphire ith Apple & Radish'; 'House-Smoked Duck with Orange & Cardamom Dressing and Candied Walnuts'; 'Pea Velouté with Kidderton Ash Goats Cheese' and 'Ham Hock & Parsley Terrine with Red Onion Marmalade & Aged Balsamic' amongst the starters.
Perhaps 'Trio of Market Fish with Saffron Risotto and Rocket & Parmesan Salad'; 'Grilled Rib Steak with Portobello Mushroom, Confit Tomato, Thick Potato Chips & Béarnaise Sauce'; 'Seared Calves Liver with Caramelised Onion & Sage Mash, Crisp Pancetta & Sauce Diable' and 'Truffled Potato Rosti with a Soft-Poached Free-Range Egg & Sautéed Woodlands Mushrooms' on the list of mains.
Tempting desserts & puds might include 'Chocolate Marquise with Mango & Passion Fruit'; 'Seasonal Berry Crumble Tart with Vanilla & Plum Ripple Ice Cream' and 'Steamed Golden Syrup Sponge with Crème Anglaise'.
