Review on The Great House Hotel, Leicester Restaurant

This impressively restored mansion was reputedly a gift from Elizabeth I to the Earl of Leicester, who used the place as a hunting lodge during the latter part of the sixteenth century. The Grade II-listed building still retains many of its fine features including stone archways, mighty inglenooks, mullioned windows and an original dovecote in the south wall.

Formal meals are served in the aptly titled Leicester's Restaurant, which provides a smart backdrop for food with a modern accent. The kitchen makes bountiful use of Welsh produce including estate-reared venison, fish from Porthcawl and organically grown vegetables.

To start there might be slow-cooked pork belly with red onion compote, sweet-and-sour dressing or smoked haddock risotto with a free-range poached egg. Main courses cover everything from roast rump of lamb with garlic mash and white bean fricassée to tournedos of organic salmon with seared foie gras, braised Puy lentils and coriander nage. 'Light bites' such as eggs Benedict and steak sandwiches are also available at lunchtime, and the wine list offers a good selection from around the world.
