Rushton Hall’s impressive historical pedigree involves associations with the Gunpowder Plot and acting as the inspiration for Dickens’ Haversham Hall, and today’s grand country hotel and spa does not disappoint when it comes to stately grandeur. The Tresham Restaurant – named after the former owners, including the ill-fated plotter – is the main formal dining room (the 1593 Brasserie is the more informal dining option), with acres of splendid oak panels and formally attired tables. It is a refined and elegant setting for food of an equally sophisticated demeanour. Head chef Adrian Coulthard’s cooking is rooted in classic good sense while incorporating contemporary ideas in his precise, refined output. Regional ingredients play their part on the rigorously seasonal menus. Monkfish cheeks are seared and served up with cauliflower purée in an opener with a hint of curry flavour, while pheasant might appear as a pressing, with lovage mayonnaise, pickled onion shells and potato crisps. Among main courses, a trio of pork includes a classy sausage roll, and sea bass is delivered with mussels and wild sea herbs, and a potato dumpling. Finish with a rhubarb triptych (poached gel, jelly), or the fabulous array of English cheeses.
