Review on Lake Country House

Named after the three-acre lake in the grounds, this exquisitely furnished Welsh country house is something of an 'architectural bagatelle', according to its owners. Begun in 1840, it was remodelled in 1900 with mock-Tudor half-timbering, colonial-style verandas and French windows.

The dining room is an embarrassment of fabrics, sofas, rugs, carpets and miles of curtains. Against this backdrop, the food is luxurious, contemporary and ready to spring a few intricate surprises. Dinner is the main event, a four-course affair that generally kicks off with soup followed by – say – ravioli of corn-fed chicken and morels with walnut cream sauce or blackened fillet of red mullet on a cornbread croûte with tomato and avocado salsa and a chilli and lime dressing.

Following on, there might be honey and cider glazed Gressingham duck breast on a duck and wild mushroom and potato galette with caramelised apples and white port jus or salmon 'en trois facon' with cardamom purée, baby leeks and sauce Jacqueline. Desserts are equally elaborate: a soufflé of Belgian chocolate with basil ice cream and orange confit syrup, for example. The top-drawer wine list is an upper-crust slate tilted towards France with a heavy scent of Bordeaux.
