Review on The Restaurant at Storrs Hall
'The Temple' (a National Trust-owned folly) is a landmark feature of this stately Georgian mansion by the shores of Lake Windermere. Standing in 17 acres of manicured grounds, the hotel is done out in regal old-English style and there are breathtaking views at every turn.
Window tables are at a premium in the elegantly appointed restaurant, which looks across the gardens running down to the water's edge. Dinner is a fixed-price menu of intricate modern dishes that might include roast smoked quail with beetroot 'three ways', roast loin of herb-crusted Swaledale lamb with petit ratatouille, sweetbreads and niçoise jus or fillet of wild salmon with smoked salmon linguine, 'poele' of summer vegetables and fresh herb nage. To finish, try the boozy 'iced B52 cocktail' – a combination of Irish cream mousse, iced Grand Marnier parfait, Kahlua jelly and coffee tuile.
The kitchen can also provide the 'ultimate picnic' if you fancy a day out. Alternatively, chill out in the lounge, with its impressively ornate bar counter rescued from Blackpool's Winter Gardens.
