Fernando Stovell has travelled a long way from home to realise his culinary ambition, ensuring in the process that Mexico's loss is Chobham's extravagant gain. The setting could hardly be more photogenically Home Counties, a red-roofed, white-fronted Tudor farmhouse, its interior beams all properly skew-whiff, the whole place a hive of industry. Stovell gives cookery lessons and produces his own vacuum-distilled organic gin. Talk about going native. For the rest, he is an infectiously confident chef in the modern British school, utilising thoroughbred produce from throughout the Isles in technically surprising and adventurous ways. There are touches of his ancestral heritage, to be sure, in a starter that adds barbecued prickly pear hollandaise to caramelised Orkney scallops, while the French veal carpaccio is dressed in a mix of avocado and smoked jalapeño. Elsewhere, main courses bring the much-favoured Asian tang of yuzu to wild sea bass with pickled mushrooms and Jerusalem artichokes, while crisp-edged pressed suckling pig in apple and cauliflower cream attains its irresistible sweet note with prunes braised in manzanilla. The wood-fired grill works wonders for aged Cumbrian beef or chillied-up fish of the day, while aubergine roasted over olive wood is the intuitive accompaniment for lamb cutlets in a startling glaze of rhubarb. Intriguing flavours continue through to desserts such as the reinvention of carrot cake with grilled baby carrots and an icing of smoked sour cream, or there could be a reassuring chocolate bombe, detonating on the palate with rich Valrhona, in salted caramel with raspberry sorbet.
