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)

Guest comments

'First stay - bedroom in the main house, Rutland; very comfortable and well appointed. Meal first-rate, staff excellent. On a second visit the bedroom was in the garden. very spacious and extremely comfortable. Dinner again worthy of the chief's Michelin star. All hotel staff, again, were excellent. ' - Robert Cave - September, 2017
'Large comfortable garden room. Expansive superking bed, comfy sofas, modern airy feel. Restaurant - formal feel, good linen, dressy. Fine dining. Worth searching out the best of the more simply conceived dishes, though if you like ‘concept’ cooking there’s a certain amount of that on show too. Pretty gardens. Pleasant small village in prime Derbyshire countryside. ' - RO - June, 2017
'Our first floor garden room was excellent - large with private entrance not shared with other guests. The other four garden rooms are grouped around a pleasant walled courtyard and garden. If the sun is out the main gardens are delightful for a drink and chat. Staff are very polite and food is outstanding in its quality. Because most guests are of a senior generation the atmosphere in the dining room is rather muted, not helped by the expectation, largely observed that gentlemen will wear jackets and perhaps ties. Breakfast is good, plenty of choice ' - Anthony Bradbury - August, 2015
'This is a very good hotel. We had a bedroom in the garden courtyard which was well equipped and very spacious. Excellent bathroom.Very friendly service and excellent food although some of the menus are expensive.A very pleasant stay. altogether. ' - David Craig - May, 2013
