Review on Soughton Hall, Stables Bar Restaurant
Built as a bishop's palace in 1714, Soughton Hall has been restored to something like its original state over the last 20 years, and it still shows off many of its unique features including Islamic turrets, mullioned windows and stunning landscaped grounds.
The bar and restaurant are housed in the old stable block, which still has its original cobbled floors, stalls and roof timbers. In the evening, meals are served in the hayloft, where diners can watch food being prepared in the open kitchen.
Food is served throughout the day and the menu is peppered with racing references. 'Punters starters' might range from black pudding and haggis patties to roast butternut squash tart with Gruyère and watercress salads, while 'owners and trainers mains' could include venison Wellington. On the 'final furlong' you will find desserts such as steamed ginger sponge pudding or Malteser and Mascarpone cheesecake.
There's no printed wine list: instead, customers can browse through the shop and pick out what they fancy to drink. The choice is wide, although South African wines are the owners' personal preference.
