Swinfen Hall Hotel

Swinfen, LICHFIELD, WS14 9RE

3 rosettes

The sika deer and rare-breed sheep roaming the 100 acres of parkland and woods around the impressive Georgian country house are not just there to look nice; they also turn up on the plate in the Four Seasons dining room. A half-acre Victorian walled garden plays its part in stocking the larder too, and what isn't home-grown is sourced with unimpeachable quality in mind. The restaurant is a formal affair with oak panelling, a hand-painted ceiling, opulent swagged drapes at sash windows, and linen-clad tables set with burnished silver, Wedgwood china and crystal glassware. The food fits the bill with classic combinations, attention to detail and well-judged elements of modernity, perhaps opening with a classy take on liver and onions - a seared lobe and parfait of foie gras with assertive onion velouté, bacon and Riesling. Following on might be butter-roasted cod with its new best friend, a chicken wing, alongside salsify and puréed ceps, the whole fragranced with lemon thyme, or perhaps pinkly succulent Cornish lamb noisettes with chargrilled cauliflower, romanesco and golden raisins in rich rosemary jus. A treat is in store at dessert in the shape of Valrhona chocolate ganache with roasted peanuts and salted caramel, served with delicately scented bay leaf ice cream.
