Whatever you’re looking for, Pennyhill Park has probably got it, from corporate bonding to spa pampering and golf – you might even rub beefy shoulders with the England rugby union team, who use it as a training base. Fortunately, the Victorian estate has room for all in its 120 acres, and a top-drawer gastronomic experience is of course on the cards in a plush setting beneath a wood-beamed ceiling in the original part of the creeper-festooned mansion; the Latymer’s kitchen is firing on all cylinders under the talented guidance of Liverpool-born Matt Worswick, who has made his bones in some of our most Rosette-laden kitchens. His tasting menus certainly deploy bags of technique and promise a thorough culinary workout, the 10-course extravaganza opening with a trio of intricately-wrought ‘snacks’ – pigs trotter cromesqui with piccalilli gel; truffled parmesan beignet; smoked baba ganoush with cardamom yogurt and Bombay mix, say, and that’s before the opening salvo of the menu proper, which might deliver sesame-dressed octopus with miso and coriander to fire up the taste buds ahead of smoked eel partnered with pickled turnip, compressed apple and dashi. Along the way, you may also encounter loin and delicious roasted heart of Sussex venison with chanterelle mushrooms, or braised shoulder of mutton with buttermilk, peas and wild garlic. Ending the show, a flourish of desserts could include chocolate délice with milk crumble and yogurt sorbet, or passionfruit cream with mango gel and coconut ice cream. The five-course lunch deal is a good entry point if you want to sample the wares on a budget.
