Review on Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel

Close to Windermere, yet away from the throngs of tourists, Holbeck Ghyll is in a prime sport overlooking the lake and the Langdale Fells. Built as a hunting lodge in the nineteenth century, it is surrounded by acres of grounds and still has an unmistakable feel of gentrified luxury.

The sumptuous oak panelled restaurant and the new Terrace restaurant both have great views and make the perfect backdrop for perfectly executed food from Head Chef Jack Jones. His cooking is built around top-quality raw materials, and he draws on the modern French repertoire for his own versions of elaborate dishes like warm salad of langoustines with celeriac and lobster rémoulade or roast quail with onion compote and truffle jus.

There's also a no-nonsense feel to some of his succinctly described main courses: best end of lamb with shallot purée and rosemary jus, roast partridge with boulangère potatoes and crisp ham, sea bass with Puy lentils, braised salsify and jus Sauternes, for example. Desserts are equally assured, perhaps chocolate and orange 'tear' with blood orange sorbet or roast Griottine cherries with sablé and chocolate cream. The serious wine list doesn't stint on quality and offers top-class bottles from around the world.
