Matt Worswick at The Latymer

Pennyhill Park Hotel & The Spa, London Road, BAGSHOT, GU19 5EU

3 rosettes

Pennyhill Park seems to be an ever-expanding enterprise, with corporate jollies, spa aficionados, golfers and the England rugby union team, who use it as a training base, passing regularly through its doors. Fortunately, the Victorian estate has 120 acres to wander, and is naturally equipped with a fine dining venue, now under the aegis of Liverpool-born Matt Worswick, who has cooked his way around some of our most Rosette-laden kitchens. His tasting menus are among the more eye-catching, opening with sesame-dressed octopus and peanut purée to get the taste buds racing ahead of grilled red mullet, timed to the second and served with baby squid and brown crab foam. A veg dish comes next, perhaps salt-baked celeriac with truffle ice cream, and then loin and delicious crispy tongue of hogget with gremolata, asparagus and morels. The dessert composition is designed to end things on a fragrant note with caramelised lemon cream, lemon sorrel granita, buckwheat shortbread and meringue. Incidentals are clearly intended to win friends and influence people too, when appetisers run to smoked baba ganoush with cardamom yogurt in a savoury cornet topped with Bombay mix, and breads, which are also top-notch, come with both unsalted butter and whipped beef dripping dusted with onion powder.
