Review on The Feathers Hotel

'Possibly the finest country town hotel in the kingdom,' was the Evening Standard's verdict on the Feathers - a gem of a place and the ideal basecamp for anyone visiting Blenheim Palace (its gates are just a stroll away from the hotel). Built during the seventeenth century, the original inn has absorbed several neighbouring townhouses over the years, and the rambling layout is part of its charm.

Formal meals are served in the classic oak-panelled restaurant with its antique pictures, luxurious drapes and elegant table settings. The kitchen delivers a bold mix of luxuries and peasant-style dishes, taking in chicken liver and foie gras parfait with pickled pear, slow-cooked pig's cheeks with spring greens and mustard pomme purée, and rump of spring lamb with salsa verde.

Alternatively try the Bistro, which offers a much more upbeat, casual view of things and a menu that is peppered with current buzzwords: 'graze' on home-pickled quails' egg or River Foy oysters, continue with one of the 'retro classics' (chicken Maryland) and finish with a 'sticky moment' (nougat glacé, for example).
