Brasserie-style menu in a grand house

The house originally dates from the 1300s, but its impressively grand Italianate exterior shows the mark of a Victorian makeover. The surrounding landscape - 110 acres all to itself - explains why this venue is such a hit with the wedding and conference brigade. With period details such as ornate cornices and white-painted columns, the dining room has a vibe reminiscent of an upmarket French brasserie. The kitchen delivers unruffled stuff such as Coln Valley smoked salmon with bacon and lentils, followed by corn-fed chicken breast with wild mushroom risotto or rib-eye steak with classic accompaniments. Finish with an equally classic lemon tart.
