Review on Horsted Place
'Glorious' is an understatement for this magnificent example of Gothic revivalist architecture, Horsted Place was designed by Augustus Pugin and built near Uckfield around 1850 by George Myers. It stands deep in the Sussex countryside, surrounded by a 1,000-acre estate that now includes the East Sussex National Golf Club.
Inside it is full of elegantly proportioned rooms and the house boasts a particularly impressive staircase. Refurbishment has lifted the mood in the smartly laid out restaurant, making it a suitable backdrop for Allan Garth's colourful modern food.
The kitchen works to a well-balanced menu that might open with twice-baked local goats' cheese soufflé on apple and celery salad with a port reduction or terrine of chicken and foie gras with red onion marmalade. Main courses could take in medallions of local organic veal with Spätzle noodles and girolles, fillet of beef accompanied by a roasted globe artichoke and summer truffle omelette or pan-roasted wild sea bass on braised yellow beans. To finish, expect Mascarpone dumplings with lime and crème fraîche ice cream as well as the more familiar glazed lemon tart.
