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 to the porticoed, pristine white boutique bolt-hole (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). You might begin with soft and tender quail, served with butternut squash filled with chorizo cubes, pomegranate seeds, goats’ curd and shallots, before moving on to an excellent piece of fresh bright turbot, served with chicken wing, sweetcorn, crab gnocchi, lemongrass and dashi. Old-school and dramatic, baked Alaska is flamed at the table and has a filling of pistachio, peach and cardamom.
