A handsome Georgian mansion standing in five acres of landscaped gardens, St Michael's Manor provides the setting for food with top-class provenance delivered by an ambitious team. Choose from an uncomplicated brasserie-style menu, or trade up to the carte for a main course matching spiced tenderloin of pork and crispy pork cheek with mango and wilted pak choi. Fish might be steamed sea bass with Dorset crab crushed potatoes, sauce vièrge and herb salad. Before that, pan-fried scallops are pointed up with chorizo-flecked mayonnaise and cauliflower. For afters, try a vibrant combo of coconut pannacotta with mango and lime.
