It was so worth the long journey - was surprised Galton wasn't cooking but Richard Bainbridge head chef is equally talented and delighted us with surprise combinations. I am quiet particular about food as we travel quiet alot and I cook reasonably, so to say that all of the 8 courses of the taster menu were beautifully cooked and served to perfection justified why we drove so far. The smoked haddock and the guinea fowl were particularly delicious. and hubby totally agreed with the delightful evening' menu. The young staff gave a prompt efficient and friendly Service that was sharp but not stuffy. The portions were ample and interesting wine flights really good value.
Only negative point as a destination priced Country house hotel and gardens both need abit of TLC and attention to detail.
