The principal restaurant at Thoresby has undergone a restyling. Now known as the Blue Grill, it has an informal feel, with a grill menu that embraces Wagyu, USDA and local beef. Steamed lobsters are on hand for the surf-and-turf platters. Inventive touches accompany the hunks of protein, with Asian-spiced cauliflower and pak choi accompanying the braised pig's cheek, or perhaps a main-course salad of roast pigeon with parsnip purée, scorched spring onions and hazelnuts. Extensive sides and sauces make for happy mixing and matching, and by the sweet stage you may be ready for sharing platters of fairground treats - candyfloss, marshmallows, ice cream cones, doughnuts and toffee apples.
