Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa, Lyndhurst Road, BROCKENHURST, SO42 7RH

3 rosettes

The New Forest location inspired the interior designers of Careys Manor's classy contemporary restaurant, Cambium, and also informs the cooking of the dynamic team in the kitchen. There are three dining options in this handsome and much extended Victorian manor house with a luxe spa, but Cambium (named for the rings that indicate the age of a tree) is the pick of the bunch, a serene space with shades of gold and cream. Executive chef Paul Peters draws on the regional larder to create a modern menu combining classic flavour combinations with up-to-date techniques. There's a tasting menu, including an impressive veggie version, and an ŕ la carte that gives the option of two or three courses. Full-of-flavour asparagus stars in a first course with crispy hen's egg and silky smooth velouté, before the arrival of gloriously tender loin and shoulder of lamb with goats' cheese bonbon, honey and wild garlic, or cod with an Asian spin. There's refinement all the way through, not least in a dessert that brings together the complementary flavours of vanilla pannacotta, various textures of rhubarb, and stem ginger ice cream. Alternatively, a deconstructed sticky toffee pudding also provides a great finish. The service is slick and informed.
