In a sprawling 120 acres of Sussex-Surrey borderland, the red-brick manor house is an architectural mash-up comprising a castellated neo-medieval turret and soaring factory-style chimneys. Inside, the designers have been busy funking up the bar and lounge with assertive splashes of psychedelic colour, but sensibly sticking to a more sober palette of royal-blue upholstery and white linen to reinforce the fine dining mood in AG's, the principal dining room (there's also a sleek brasserie called Reflections). Innovative technique and eye-catching presentation are the hallmarks of dishes that have their roots in the classical repertoire. First off, a slow-cooked Arlington White hen’s egg is matched harmoniously with pearl barley risotto, shavings and purée of Jerusalem artichoke and a generous kick of black truffle. Cooking techniques add depth, as when suckling pig is roasted and teamed with gem squash purée, trompette mushrooms, seared onions and rich sage noisette sauce, while a fishy main might see halibut paired with ceps, salsify, kale and Oscietra caviar. French and British cheeses await those whose taste for culinary dynamism hasn't quite yet run to spiced pumpkin ice cream with ginger cake, buttermilk granita and salted butter noisette. Everything including the bread is made with craft and attention to detail, and it’s all backed by a compendious wine list.
