Arundell Arms

Fore Street, LIFTON, PL16 0AA

2 rosettes

Wedged in the narrow interstice between the western edge of Dartmoor and the Cornish border, in some of the southwest's most appealing countryside, the Arundell Arms sits on the main road through its little village. What looks like a rural pub on the outside is an elevated country hotel within, with lavish traditional furnishings and a large dining room with tall windows looking over the grounds at the back. The kitchen offers a traditionally based Anglo-French repertoire founded on quality materials, with some contemporary detailing adding interest. First off could be a grilled John Dory fillet on creamed lentils with brown shrimps and a scallop fritter, or classic saut?ed lamb's kidneys with onion pur?e in grain mustard sauce, the overtures possibly to pork tenderloin with chicken mousseline in a sauce of Cornwall's Rattler cider. There's a gentle richness to the impact of dishes, seen in Aylesbury duck with dauphinoise and rhubarb in peppercorn sauce, and most temptingly of all in dark chocolate terrine with marinated orange and Amaretto ice cream.
