Storrs Hall Hotel

Storrs Park, WINDERMERE, LA23 3LG

The Rosette award for this establishment has been suspended due to a change of chef. Reassessment will take place in due course under the new chef. The setting is a grand Georgian mansion in 17 acres of pristine grounds with a National Trust-owned temple folly, and an elegant dining room looking through vast windows to inspirational Lakeland views sweeping across gardens with giant stone urns and immaculate topiary, and onwards to the shore of Lake Windermere and the brooding fells beyond. A pretty impressive backdrop, then, for ingenious modern country house cooking, delivered via a three-course seasonal carte, a 5-course dinner menu or a nine-stage taster menu full of intricate, boldly flavoured dishes. A starter of roasted veal sweetbreads arrives in a full-on medley with charred leeks and an intense sauce of trompette de mort mushrooms, followed by a main course showcasing local Middlewhite pork, dry-aged for 55 days, the loin moist and tender, and scented with ceps, together with a faggot of braised shoulder meat and a technically impressive workout involving various preparations of parsnip. The kitchen might look eastwards in its treatment of fish - perhaps flame-grilled and glazed mackerel seasoned with gomashio and matched with pickled cucumber and miso emulsion. Innovation is maintained through to a dessert of butter-baked pear with salted crumble, caramel ganache and Jerusalem artichoke ice cream. Thoroughly professional, formal service completes the picture.
