Set in 365 acres of parkland with its own golf course and high-flying contemporary country-house cooking to draw in 21st-century sybarites, the 14th-century manor house ticks all the right boxes for Cotswolds exclusivity. Named after the river that flows through the grounds, The Bybrook restaurant does a nice line in heritage and class with its mullioned windows, sober colours and pristine white linen, but there’s nothing old-fashioned about the food here – Rob Potter’s cooking is defined by well-thought-out and enterprising ideas, clear flavours and razor-sharp accuracy. As you’d hope, it’s all based on top-drawer ingredients, often sourced from the vicinity, and what doesn't carry the 'local' tag is tracked with due diligence – the Newlyn mackerel, for example, that stars in a starter with Cornish crab, local Exmoor caviar, pickled mooli radish and avocado purée. Next up, first-class line-caught sea bass is teamed with an entertaining medley of Jerusalem artichokes, ceps, crosnes and kale, all bathed in a sultry chicken jus. The sure-footed display ends with banana torte with caramel, banana mousse, nougatine and cocoa sorbet.
