With the departure of Russell Bateman (chef here since 2014) to Knightsbridge’s Pétrus, the future of the small main dining room of this ultra-luxurious 18th century five-star hotel is uncertain. In winter 2018, it will re-open as a pop-up (name unknown) – thereafter it will probably be a restaurant space, but no decisions seem to have been taken in this respect as yet.

The swish main dining room of this 18th century mansion, nowadays a luxe hotel, perennially garners thin feedback and has never really established itself as a foodie destination. Those who do review it are impressed however – “if I won the lottery I would make this my regular place”.

This tranquil but pricey country house hotel inspired relatively scant commentary this year for its main dining room, but – though it didn’t impress all reporters – ex-Petrus chef Russell Bateman’s ambitious tasting menus were generally well rated.
