Keepers Lane, Leavenheath, COLCHESTER, CO6 4PZ
This purpose-built hotel complex comes complete with spa, high-tech gym, two championship-level golf courses and The Lakes Restaurant, a bright and airy room with panoramic views. The enterprising kitchen sends out ambitious dishes such as hake fillet with pork crackling, white pudding, broccoli, potato mashed with bacon and mustard, and blood orange. Starters are equally eclectic, among them rum-cured salmon with lime purée, mint syrup ice, rum marshmallow and fizz, although there may also be more orthodox chicken liver parfait with apricot and sultana jam. For dessert, try a palate-challenging doughnut stuffed with sticky toffee bacon served with spiced coffee sugar, milk, maple walnut ice cream and pancetta.
