The Rosette award for this establishment has been suspended due to a change of chef. Reassessment will take place in due course under the new chef. It’s hard to believe that this handsome Georgian country pile just outside the foodie hub of Ludlow was falling apart until its current owners restored it in 2007 to the porticoed, pristine white boutique bolthole (with a spa tucked away in the garden) that we see today. Housed in an orangery extension, Forelles restaurant enjoys views of the rolling Shropshire hills as a backdrop to the classic country-house cuisine. As you’d hope, it’s all built on pedigree materials sourced from within a 30-mile radius (apart from seafood, of course, which comes from Brixham and Skye).
