Built to impress, this vast Victorian pile sits in 150 acres of grounds with its own lake and a full complement of spa and wedding facilities. Inside, marble, mahogany and stained-glass combine in a display of jaw-dropping opulence, a style that continues in the Wellington Restaurant. To start, there's a terrine of ham hock with a crispy pork bonbon, apple purée and a sourdough crisp, while main course brings a duo of slow-cooked pork belly and cheek supported by broccoli and potato fondant. Elegance and comfort are key again in a finale of crème brûlée with Garibaldi biscuits and pistachio ice cream.
