The original 19th-century mansion has been extended over the years, but it’s still the heart and soul of the place, and it is where you’ll find Matt Worswick at The Latymer, one of the UK’s most compelling contemporary restaurants. The 120-acre estate offers all sorts of distractions, from a nine-hole golf course to a luxury spa, and it’s even home to the England rugby union team when they gather to train for matches. Among a number of dining options at the hotel, The Latymer is a genteel and luxurious space with panelled walls and rich fabrics. In this formal and elegant setting comes food of diverting modernity, with contemporary cooking techniques showcased on five- or seven-course tasting menus. Flavour combinations are seldom less than thrilling, such as an opener of oyster emulsion, with cured sea trout and Yorkshire rhubarb, and playfulness with temperature brings excitement to salt-baked celeriac. The very best seasonal produce finds its way to the table and everything looks just beautiful as it is set gently before you. From the seven-course menu, veal sweetbread with heritage carrot and pickled shimeji mushrooms has a hint of liquorice running through it, while both menus get Gigha halibut with smoked almond pesto and seaweed beurre blanc. It may be technically clever cooking, but Matt Worswick never lets the fabulous produce get lost along the way, which is true right up to desserts such as a choux bun with vanilla mascarpone, rhubarb and hibiscus. The wine list is a global tour de force.
