Review on Hipping Hall
Ensconced in three acres of lovely walled gardens in the hinterland between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, this historic stone manor house has been extensively and sympathetically renovated over the years and now offers elegant comfort in evocative surroundings.
The main talking point is dinner in the magnificent surroundings of the high-vaulted Tudor banqueting hall, which comes complete with a 'walk-in' fireplace and oak beams salvaged from old ships. Ask for a table by the fire in winter, and book for the balcony during the summer.
Lancashire born chef Oli Martin holds sway in the kitchen and he draws on the abundance of local supplies for dishes with a modern British flavour. Confit of Kitridding Farm Gloucester Old Spot belly pork is served with roasted langoustines, choucroute and crispy pig's ear, while loin of Mansergh Hall spring lamb might appear with basil pommes purée, baby artichokes, confit garlic, tomato and basil sauce. On the fish front, you could be treated to the 'first of the season' wild salmon, while elaborately contrived desserts are in the mould of Goosnargh yoghurt mousse with ginger caramel, red wine granita and spiced poached fig.
