Personality-laden modern British food at a Gothic manor house

A television personality and larger-than-life character, Mr Nutter's restaurant is a family affair (mum and dad work here too), with the grand old house done out in a contemporary manner. The menu takes a modern British path, with plenty of flavours from Asia added to the mix, and regional ingredients providing a sense of place. Among starters, slow-roasted Dingley Dell pork belly is infused with Chinese flavours, while main courses might include pan-seared hake with ginger beer-battered scallop and tarragon hollandaise, or Goosnargh chicken served two ways (Parma ham-wrapped roulade and mini Kiev). Finish with dark and white chocolate cheesecake with Oreo crumb and honeycomb.
