The Woodspeen is a restaurant with a swanky new cookery school attached. The building has been expanded with a natty glass-fronted extension that has a touch of Scandinavian style about it, complete with a soaring blond wood ceiling. Start with Cornish mackerel with beetroots (golden and ruby) and horseradish in a fashionable partnership, or a simple wild mushroom risotto with aged parmesan. Follow with local venison of the highest order, or a halibut and chorizo dish that doesn't reach the same heights. There's plenty of talent in this kitchen, judging by a finisher of egg custard tart with clementine sorbet.
