Review on Whatley Manor
Twelve acres of lavender-scented gardens and woodland (tended by a team of five horticulturists) surround this sumptuously renovated Cotswold manor, which now boasts state-of-the-art spa, leisure and health facilities.
The interior is the last word in opulence, with woodwork of every description, handmade wallpapers and specially commissioned Venetian chandeliers. Whatley Manor has two restaurants, the casual Grey's Brasserie or their Michelin-starred Dining Room, which is under the leadership of Executive Chef Niall Keating, who was awarded the prestigious accolade of Michelin Young European Chef of the Year 2018.
The one Michelin starred Dining Room showcases impeccable dishes such as langoustine cannelloni with caramelised langoustine tails, Jerusalem artichoke purée and a fricassee of fennel and tomato, Dutch breast and fillet of veal prepared in different ways, and roast loin of Balmoral Estate venison with cauliflower purée and poached pear. As a finale, indulge in a 'taste of coffee and chocolate', or try prune and Armaganc soufflé with its own ice cream and Ceylon tea granita.
The wine list is a zesty global selection, rather than a ponderous assortment of country-house vintages.
