The creeper-covered turreted mansion on the outskirts of the city has been in the same family ownership since 1952, sitting in 10 acres of exquisite gardens. Its name refers to the 'rough flat lands' that once comprised the local landscape. The cooking is as modern as can be, trying out interesting approaches to top-drawer prime materials. First up might be ham hough terrine garnished with sticks of apple, mango salsa and cider jelly. Main course might bring on vividly tinted saffron-poached cod in herb and pancetta crust with cauliflower foam. Dessert may well be damn fine pecan pie with cinnamon ice cream and caramelised banana.
