Modern fine dining in historic house

It's hard to believe but before Birmingham's suburban sprawl engulfed the village of Sutton Coldfield, this 800-year-old moat house stood in empty countryside. Nowadays, it's cushioned from the hurly-burly of modern Brum by 26 acres of fabulous grounds. The Bridge Restaurant is the top-end dining option, where mullioned stained-glass windows blend with a gently modern neutral decor. Smoked mackerel rillettes, horseradish cream, dill and crème fraîche sorbet could start an indulgent meal, followed by guinea fowl ballotine, pickled raisin and haricot bean cassoulet. Finally, perhaps opt for the simply described ‘Chocolate’ dessert for two that comprises millionaire shortbread, aerated chocolate and sorbet.
