Impressive local food and Georgian comforts

AA Inspector

At a glance

All day dining

This Georgian mansion has morphed into a swish hotel with a brasserie, which despite its subterranean location actually looks over the gardens. Dining on the terrace is also an option, weather permitting. The menu is a tribute to local produce and follows the seasons with mainly British-influenced dishes. A fish plate with tempura of sole with chilli jam, pineapple salsa, cured trout, lemon and lime emulsion, potted Kilmore crab and croûte opens the show, then roast breast of chicken, twice-cooked leg of chicken with butternut squash and thyme purée served with a truffle-scented pomme mousseline. To finish, mango parfait, raspberries, honeycomb and raspberry sorbet.
