Summary

“Classically traditional in every way, and none the worse for that!” – Tim Hart’s “grand” and luxurious mansion enjoys “an idyllic setting with views over Rutland Water” (although, in fact, the house was built before the lake!) The “consistency of excellent standards here is extraordinary” over many years – not least Aaron Patterson’s classic cuisine that’s “perfectly balanced and packed with taste”; “superb wine” too.

The complete country house dining package doesn’t come much better than at Tim Hart’s “truly unforgettable” house, with its “lovely situation overlooking Rutland Water”; Aaron Patterson’s “solidly classical” cooking is “extraordinarily consistent” and matched by “terrific” wines, “perfectly pitched” service and “beautiful” decor.

Summary

A “beautiful location on a peninsular jutting into Rutland Water” sets the scene for Tim Hart’s “impeccable” (and slightly “stiff”) country house hotel, where Aaron Patterson’s “complex” and “wonderfully confident” cooking achieves an “utterly consistent” standard.

"Food is solid and safe, generally very tasty and well presented. Service is superb with professional and engaging staff. Great sommelier and good value wine list. The restaurant itself is a little tired but I guess it is regarded as traditional."
