The Mount Somerset Hotel & Spa

Lower Henlade, TAUNTON, TA3 5NB

2 rosettes

A pristine white Regency manor house in four acres, The Mount fairly piles on the style. West Country produce finds its way on to menus of soundly conceived British modernism. Cauliflower purée be gone, as the scallops arrive with goats' cheese, pineapple and avocado aïoli, while venison, red cabbage and parsnips are resized into an appetising starter. Beef reared on Exmoor is aged for 28 days before the fillet is roasted and served with pink fir apple potatoes braised in duck fat. Fish might be Cornish turbot in vivid saffron nage with a crab and ginger raviolo. To finish, try the pear and almond cream tart with an ice cream of Somerset cider brandy.
