The ivy-covered country house in its own wooded grounds a few miles out of Norwich is a charming family-run hotel where contemporary cooking based on quality ingredients aims to satisfy rather than startle. Begin with a grilled mackerel, simply adorned with peas, lemon and cucumber, or a voguish pigeon breast starter with a salad of pomegranate, hazelnuts and watercress. Fish continues to show well at main-course stage, in the form of crisp-skinned sea bass with wild mushrooms, beetroot and puréed onions, while the game season brings on roast pheasant with orange-spiked cabbage. Finish with apple and pecan pie and clotted cream ice cream, or white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake.
