At the heart of Yew Lodge is the original Georgian house with its views down Packington Hill. The Orchard restaurant is attractively traditional, with plenty of natural light. The menu takes a modern European approach, with occasional forays east for the likes of stir-fried noodles with Chinese greens and baby corn, or seared sea bass in Thai broth. Otherwise, expect grilled haloumi on a tart topped up with courgette, aubergine and peppers, before pulled pork with black pudding and apple-sultana salsa, or perhaps seared salmon with its own croquette in Caesar sauce. Desserts include carrot cake with crème fraîche sorbet, or summer berry Pavlova with ginger cream and lime granita.
