This “beautiful” Lutyens-designed Arts & Crafts country house hotel, on the edge of a championship golf course, is reputed for its “superb” afternoon teas (“taken early not to spoil your dinner”), although the restaurant, overseen by the famous Albert, also turns out “first-class” meals.
“Brilliant, friendly, personal service and excellent cuisine” help the dining room of this posh Lutyens-designed country house hotel do justice to the Roux brand. It’s a favourite afternoon tea spot too: “expensive but worth it… and you get to play croquet!”
A Roux empire outpost in a posh Lutyens-designed country house hotel; even sceptics of the “somewhat unchanging” menu award the food respectable marks – while fans feel that “of the Chez Roux restaurants in Scotland, this is the best by quite a margin”.
A “wonderful” outpost of the Roux empire in a classy Lutyens-designed house; it's an ideal spot for a “perfect weekend lunch”, bookended by “drinks in the library” and “coffee in the beautiful garden”.
