We arrived early and set up camp in front of the fire with the Sunday papers, a bottle of wine and a plate of delicious crudite - excellent - just what a great British Sunday should be! There was no attempt to rush us despite the fact that they were about to become very busy, menus were left for us to consider at our leisure.
We moved to the dining room, an elegant room with views over the front lawn, where I started with avacado and blush pear with a blue cheese dressing - simply gorgeous, my partner had the chicken liver pate and onion chutney with which he was also very pleased. His roast beef was pink and came with a Yorkshire pudding and all the timmings - I had pork with crackling, caremalised apples and 'to die for' gravy - all yummy. The dish of veg, that we shared, was also tasty and beautifully cooked though we could have done with more (which I am sure would have been provided had we asked). My partner enjoyed his bread and butter pudding whilst I downed a delicious rhubarb creme brulee to finish. With a modest bottle of wine the bill was £60 excluding the gratuity, which the first class service justly deserved. It was not our first trip to Glewstone and certainly won't be our last. The lovely old house has a wonderfully relaxed country house feel, Bill is a joyously eccentric host, the food is very good, the welcome is warm and friendly and the staff cheerful and super efficient.
