Secluded in 22 acres of sublime landscaped gardens and parkland, Chilston Park brims with enough period authenticity, antiques and oil paintings that you might be inspired to dress as Jane Austen's Mr Darcy or Elizabeth Bennet for dinner in the unique, sunken Venetian-style Culpeper's restaurant. The kitchen deals in modern British cooking clearly rooted in the classics but with some inventive combinations. Goats' cheese mousse with butternut purée and toasted seeds might open the bidding, before a well-timed tranche of halibut arrives with saffron cocotte potatoes and marsh samphire in a citrus-spiked red wine emulsion. Proceedings conclude with a well-made apple and quince tart and milk sorbet.
