This grand old house is run as a family affair by the larger-than-life TV chef Andrew Nutter. The menu takes a modern British path, with plenty of flavours from Asia and regional ingredients providing a sense of place. Among starters, try crispy lobster fritter, garlic, lemon and basil emulsion with couscous salad, while main courses might include Goosnargh duck breast served with a rosemary potato fondant, romanesco cauliflower and pear gel or fillet of Limousin beef, salsa verde, buttered kale, truffle and bacon new potatoes. Finish with custard sandwich, salted caramel ice cream and caramelised pears. There's a good value 'business lunch' menu with three courses and a six course surprise menu.
