Woodlands Park Hotel

Woodlands Lane, STOKE D'ABERNON, Cobham, KT11 3QB

2 rosettes

Money was clearly no object for William Bryant, son of one of the founders of the match company, when he built this magnificent pile in 1885. It's set in landscaped grounds and gardens and has the sort of interior you'd expect, and the squishy sofas of the Great Hall are great for people watching. The Oak Room, the main dining option, is just that, its walls panelled, its ceiling of intricate oak, with comfortable leather chairs and professional but unbuttoned service. The kitchen aims to please its clientele by giving a contemporary tweak to traditional ideas, and a grounding in the classical repertoire is evident. Start with duck liver ballotine, its richness cut by sweet wine jelly, or leek and potato velout? with the luxury of black truffle shavings. Main courses make an impact without being overwrought: fillet and braised shoulder of lamb with goats' curd, roasted aubergine and caramelised cippolini onions, say, or pan-fried monkfish with spicy Puy lentils and tomato ragout. End with a textbook cherry clafoutis with clotted cream ice cream.
