Review on Feversham Arms Hotel & Verbena Spa
'Comfortable and eclectic' is owner Simon Rhatigan's description of this Yorkshire country house within driving distance of York. Don't expect any whiffs of stuffiness or nostalgia here: the Feversham Arms lives firmly in the present day, with its attractive contemporary décor and conservatory dining room.
The kitchen takes its cue from the local landscape and makes good use of moorland game, Yorkshire meat and farmhouse cheeses, as well as fish from Whitby. Dinner is the main event and the cooking shows a sure, accomplished and professional touch.
To start there might be pan-fried scallops with crisp fennel salad and curried crème fraîche, while main courses could take in anything from pork belly with braised red cabbage and horseradish foam to poached guinea fowl with roast garlic gnocchi, apple fondant and walnuts. As a finale, try chocolate and five spice mousse with cinnamon ice cream and fig compote, or ask to see the trolley of cheeses.
Lunch is an easy-going affair that can be eaten in one of the lounges, the snug, conservatory or pool garden. The wine list runs to 100 bins, with a decent choice of fairly-priced drinking across the range.
