Review on Langar Hall
Inhabiting a world of its own, overlooking acres of gardens and medieval ponds stocked with carp, Langar Hall is a highly idiosyncratic Georgian mansion awash with crystal chandeliers, gilt mirrors, statues and marble pillars. Over the years, Imogen Skirving has run the place almost like a family home, and her devoted presence adds enormously to the unique atmosphere of the hotel.
'Natural, organic and wild' is no idle boast when it comes to the food on offer, and the whole enterprise is built around a network of local growers and suppliers who are in tune with the seasons. Pickings from the hotel's kitchen garden supplement the harvest, while nearby Belvoir Castle Estate yields plentiful game throughout the year.
Home-smoked salmon might be served with scrambled duck egg and home-baked bread, roast saddle and char-grilled leg of Langar lamb are teamed up with potato rösti, while poached mirabelle plums could appear as a dessert in company with hazelnut sabayon, clotted cream and mulberry ripple ice. Fish comes up from Brixham, and the choice might range from seared scallops with creamed baby leeks to steamed fillet of brill with Parmesan gnocchi and mussel sauce. The wine list is a well-spread global slate with some 20 selections offered by the glass.
Snacks and simple bistro dishes are also available right through the day in the family-oriented Garden Room.
