Wentbridge House Hotel

The Great North Road, Wentbridge, PONTEFRACT, WF8 3JJ

2 rosettes

With a heritage that includes ownership by the Leatham family of Barclays Bank fame, Wentbridge is these days a country-house hotel with a good deal of appeal. There are over 20 acres of grounds to explore in the lush Went Valley for a start and, inside the 300-year-old building, plenty of traditional charm. The Fleur de Lys is the main dining venue (The Wentbridge Brasserie the buzzy alternative), with its smartly dressed tables, chic upholstered chairs and banquettes, and a menu of updated classics, including beef Diane prepared at the table. Hand-dived scallops with Happy Trotters pork belly croquette, pea purée and crackling salad gets things off to a flying start, followed perhaps by saddle of Round Green Farm rose venison with venison faggot, spring cabbage, fennel purée and mushroom jus. The menu faithfully name-checks the many excellent regional ingredients, such as Flookburgh shrimp butter to accompany seared East Coast sea bass with steamed asparagus. To finish, perhaps something like Yorkshire treacle tart with raspberry ripple ice cream.
