This majestic old building stands in 20 acres of gardens and parkland. Inside, there's a classy 18th-century look, plus a modern spa. The kitchen offers a fashionable surf 'n' turf combination of diver-caught roasted scallop with sticky pork belly, kohlrabi and apple purée among first courses, or poached and roasted quail with truffles. Next up, there is an optional sorbet. Among main courses, pan-fried fillet of stone bass comes with cauliflower in various forms and Ebène caviar, and, to finish, Bramley apple soufflé is served with crumble and apple ice cream. The cracking wine list offers good advice on food and wine matching.
