Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Outstanding’ cooking brings guests up the winding, chestnut tree-lined drive to Susan and Max Fischer’s Edwardian manor house. It stands in mature landscaped gardens ‘delightful for a drink and a chat’. Come hungry: in the ‘muted’ dining room (‘the expectation, largely observed, is that gentlemen will wear a jacket and, perhaps, a tie’), chef Rupert Rowley has a Michelin star for his modern menus. His dishes make remarkable use of British produce, home-grown vegetables, even honey from garden hives; in season, look out for foraged wild garlic and summer flowers on lunch and dinner dishes. Characteristic plates: quail tempura, toasted seeds; smoked beef rib, onion crust. Vegetarians are well catered for with an imaginative menu. Stay in country-style bedrooms, some more modern, others (perhaps with a half-tester bed or an original fireplace) rather traditional. ‘Our excellent first-floor garden room had a private entrance. Inside: a settee, a comfortable chair, a nice, modern bathroom.’ After a ‘good’ breakfast with ‘plenty of choice’, don’t miss a wander round the lush kitchen garden. (Anthony Bradbury, and others)
