Review on Restaurant 56 at Sudbury House

Restaurant 56 is the showpiece restaurant of Sudbury House, a Grade II listed building set in nine acres of beautiful grounds in the charming market town of Faringdon, located on the edge of the Cotswolds between Oxford and Swindon. The light and airy restaurant has an elegant décor whilst retaining its traditional character and overlooks the picturesque landscaped garden. It's a fitting setting for Executive Chef Andrew Scott, who joins the restaurant from The Curlew Restaurant in East Sussex, where he gained his first prestigious Michelin star in the 2014 Guide.

The kitchen delivers accomplished, sharp modern dishes using carefully sourced local and seasonal ingredients. Open your account with grilled fillet of mackerel, parsley and horseradish crust, beetroot salad, caviar and white balsamic or pigeon carpaccio, white truffle custard, Madeira jelly and salt baked Jerusalem artichokes. Main courses pick up the theme with fillet of English rose veal, butternut and sage, sweetbread cannelloni and winter chanterelles or cured sous vide cod loin, shrimp and potato risotto, charred leeks and crab bisque sauce. Prettily displayed desserts close the show, witness lemon curd cream, verbena jelly, pine nut ice cream, and meringues or rhubarb cannelloni cheesecake, pistachio, stem ginger paired with Advocaat ice cream

The wine list offers a splendid choice, carefully chosen from around the globe with seven options available by the glass. Sudbury House has 49 stylish rooms should you wish to extend your stay and explore the surrounding countryside.

    Michelin star soon

    A fairly new restaurant which is sure to make it's mark as one of the best within 50 miles. Quality and presentation of food is Michelin star standard with some real touches of imagination (for instance Halibut Rarebit which is exceptionally good). Prices are extremely good for this quality of food. As a regular diner at Michelin starred restaurants this has now become one of my favourites.
