Review on Farlam Hall
Set in the relatively undiscovered northern reaches of the Lake District, this historic manorial country house can trace its lineage back to the sixteenth century, although it was substantially 'improved' during Victorian times to include landscaped gardens with a stream and an ornamental lake.
Long-term custodians the Quinions and the Stevensons have been in residence since the hall re-opened in 1975, and they continue to run the place in personal, relaxed style. Barrie Quinion is top dog in the kitchen and he works to a daily fixed-price menu that runs to four courses plus coffee.
To begin, there might be cream of carrot and lettuce soup or hot confit of Gressingham duck leg on salad leaves with raspberry vinegar and walnut dressing, while main courses could range from grilled tenderloin of local pork on mash with crispy Parma ham and pink peppercorn sauce or roulade of lemon sole on buttered spinach with a creamy dill and sherry sauce. English cheeses come next and proceedings draw to a close with an array of desserts – perhaps dark chocolate tart or crème fraîche mousse with fruit coulis.
