Flavour-driven modern cookery in stately surroundings

Rushton Hall comes with all the stately bells and whistles you would hope for in a grandiose 16-century country house, its stone mullioned windows, monster fireplaces and acreages of oak panelling given historic resonance by its time as the seat of the Tresham family, whose name gained a certain infamy by getting mixed up in the Gunpowder Plot. Seamless, unobtrusive service is part of the deal, starting when dinner guests gather for aperitifs in the Great Hall, before a stately progression to the handsome dining room, where service from silver trays is the norm and classical music plays. Adrian Coulthard's modern British dishes are very much flavour-driven creations of the 21st century, with arty presentation, perfect tuning and clear-as-a-bell flavours all making their impact – a starter of quail, say, where the breast, sticky leg and parfait are partnered with crispy egg and pickled carrots. Multi-layered presentations and thoughtful takes on classic flavour combinations are a hallmark of main courses – loin, belly and barbecued shoulder of lamb, perhaps, matched with ratatouille, tomato and basil oil, while fish might be cod with cured egg yolk, celeriac purée, wild sea herbs and butter sauce. End with a timeless pairing of pistachio soufflé with bitter chocolate ice cream.
