125 Windsor Road, CHOBHAM, GU24 8QS

4 rosettes

Located in a renovated 500-year-old Tudor farmhouse in Surrey since 2012, Fernando Stovell's restaurant has gathered plaudits from day one. The whole operation is driven by a passionate enthusiasm for food and drink - they even distil their own organic gin. Inside, the place presents a gnarled picture attesting to its venerable age, all head-skimming ceilings and whitewashed brick walls punctuated by contorted black beams, complemented by contemporary-styled pictures of mushrooms. The pairing of unusual flavours and textures is clearly a passion, requiring an arsenal of skills to prepare and there's serious technical ability in the kitchen, supported by the proper kit, including a wood-fired oven, so the flavours ring true on the plate. Exhilarating virtuoso starters include warm aromatic foie gras with burnt grelot onions, toasted cobnuts, hay tea dressing and pennywort, or caramelised hand-dived scallops with kohlrabi and pine nut purée. Next up, splendid North Sea halibut receives exotic treatment, steamed in miso butter and partnered with bok choy and langoustine dim sum, or rib of beef for two chargrilled over vine cuttings, or guinea fowl served with guanciale, charred squash and cavolo nero. Impressive desserts include fig tarte Tatin with brown butter ice cream and grilled orange syrup, or you could finish on a savoury note with perfectly ripened artisan cheeses. Service is by a young, knowledgeable team and a first-rate sommelier, who create a welcoming atmosphere.
