Lords of the Manor

UPPER SLAUGHTER, Cheltenham, GL54 2JD

3 rosettes

The Manor looks a treat whatever the time of day, its honeyed stone basking in the Cotswold sun, lights blazing in the mullioned windows at evening beckoning wanderers in the grounds to come in and join the party. Staff are expertly attuned to enhance the ambience with a wise mix of professionalism and relaxing warmth - the knowledgeable sommelier is a particular asset - and the dining room forgoes vibrant patterning in favour of a soft-focus neutral look with double-clothed tables and a few pictures on plain white walls. The menus showcase Richard Picard-Edwards' accomplished style of multi-layered modern cooking. Confident balancing of all elements is in evidence in an opener of port-marinated duck livers with peach, almonds and chamomile jelly in gingerbread sauce, its sweetly inviting flavours matched with an inclusive glass of dessert wine. Things take a more savoury turn in mains such as loin and haunch of Salisbury Plain venison with creamed celeriac, pickled red cabbage purée and blackberries in sloe gin sauce, or roast fillet of sea bass with smoked sausage and borlotti beans in a poultry jus. A well-risen soufflé of prunes, served with Earl Grey ice cream and chocolate and bergamot ganache, concludes proceedings.
