With views over Lough Swilly, this country house has a restaurant run by a hands-on team. The series of dining rooms - including a sun room - have polished teak tables and smart linen napery. The menu shows a passion for local produce, along with sound classical training and bright modern thinking. Seared scallops with Haven Smokehouse salmon comes with pickled cucumber, cumin-scented beetroot and courgette jelly in a smart first course, followed by rack of Donegal lamb with ratatouille and boulangère potatoes. To finish, strawberry and white chocolate mousse, or tarte Tatin with apple parfait and crème anglaise.
