Not far from Glasgow, Crossbasket was conjured out of a much older castle in the 17th century, complete with crenellated façade and spiral turret staircases. An elegant dining room of pale yellow wallpaper, a winter fire and linened tables under an ornate gold-leafed plasterwork ceiling, offering superb views over the gardens, is a refined backdrop for a Roux operation, père et fils, in which the classical French dishes are finished with some innovative touches. Highland game pâté comes shoehorned into a croûte casing with a layer of savoury jelly, accompanied by spiced pear and raisin chutney, or you might begin with a great fat Orkney scallop that has truffled leek and potato velouté poured over it at the table. Confident meat cookery produces Gartmorn duck breast with sherried prunes in a glossy jus, or fine pink venison in red wine with richly creamy pomme purée, Savoy cabbage and beetroot. Crisp-glazed lemon tart with bramble sorbet is from the vintage Albert Roux playbook, while Valrhona chocolate pavé with salt caramel and popcorn ice cream is distinctly more de nos jours.
