Review on The Chaddesley Restaurant, Brockencote Hall
'A taste of France in the heart of England' just about sums up Brockencote Hall. You approach this imposing Victorian mansion via a long drive that winds its way through 70 acres of grounds, past fine specimen trees, a dovecote and a lake. French owners Joseph and Alison Petitjean have been in residence for two decades and have transformed the hall into 'an oasis of elegance'.
The recently refurbished Chaddesley Restaurant has a new chef heading the kitchen, Tim Jenkins who has been promoted from his previous role of sous chef. Expect dishes along the lines of pan roasted scallop, Jerusalem artichoke, salted hazelnut, baby squid, followed by roast wood pigeon, seared liver, chestnut, braised salsify, and chicory or line caught sea bass fillet, salt baked celeriac, wild celery, crevette. Bringing up the rear are desserts such as salted chicory and bitter chocolate delice with mandarin sorbet or golden plum, date cake, and caramelized honey cream.
Set lunches are good value, and the six-course 'dégustation' menu is a great treat if you fancy splashing out. As you might expect, most wines on the expansive list emanate from France, although there's also a sprinkling from 'other countries'.
