Review on Wood Hall, The Georgian Restaurant
Head out the village of Linton and follow the long sweeping drive that leads up to this secluded grand hotel dating from 1750. It stands in 100 acres of woodland and parkland and, from the house – high up in its elevated position – you can enjoy some of the finest views in Yorkshire.
There's a suitably well-to-do feeling about the chandeliered Georgian Restaurant, where dinner is the highlight of the day. You might begin with a bowl of Yorkshire pea soup luxuriously accompanied by oscietra caviar, blinis and sour cream or mille-feuille of sweetbreads with caramelised pear, marjoram crisps and soubise foam. Main courses focus on well-sourced ingredients: canon of local lamb and braised shoulder come with an emulsion of shallots and a vinaigrette of root vegetables, while black-leg chicken is pot-braised and served with a Champagne nage and truffle tagliatelle.
Desserts might include a sumptuous 'study in strawberries', along with – perhaps – warm pineapple tarte Tatin with lavender and almond ice cream or jasmine tea and lime parfait with roasted peach and orange caramel. The wine list is an ever-evolving, broadly based collection from around the globe, and it's worth looking out for special promotions.
