The castellated house was built in the 18th century, and despite having something of a martial career, now offers a range of hospitable dining venues including the bar, housed in the former dungeon, and the Mapas Restaurant, named after a former owner, where you'll find a menu of well-wrought modern brasserie cooking. There's no wild experimentation here, just good honest preparations of prime materials. Expect rosemary-scented seared scallops on an underlay of wilted spinach as the prelude to pistachio-crusted rack of lamb on champ, or monkfish with minted pea purée in saffron sauce. Finish with frozen winter berries and coconut ice cream.
