Storrs Hall Hotel

Storrs Park, WINDERMERE, LA23 3LG

The Rosette award for this establishment has been suspended due to a change of chef. Reassessment will take place in due course under the new chef. The setting is a grand Georgian mansion in 17 acres of pristine grounds with a National Trust-owned temple folly, and an elegant dining room looking through vast windows to inspirational Lakeland views, taking in sweeping gardens with giant stone urns and immaculate topiary, and onwards towards the shore of Lake Windermere and the brooding fells beyond. It's a pretty impressive backdrop then for some ingenious modern country-house cooking, delivered via a five-course dinner menu built from intricate, boldly flavoured dishes. A starter of poached rabbit loin seems to have it all, with accompaniments of Alsace bacon, maple peas, puréed parsnip and winter truffle, or there may be an eastern-influenced flamed and grilled mackerel dish seasoned with gomashio (Japanese sesame and salt), and matched with pickled cucumber and miso emulsion. Main course might showcase tenderly roasted halibut with smoked mussels and baked golden beetroot, or add rhubarb and spiced granola to duck breast and leg in jus gras. For veggies, it could be barbecued Jerusalem artichokes, sprout shells and celeriac crisps, with parsley oil dressing. Innovation is maintained through to a dessert of frozen lemon custard with yuzu crémeux, fennel pollen ice cream and green tea. Thoroughly professional formal service completes the picture.
