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.

    We were seated outside where there was a raised grass area. This is where many children not just ours were playing. The other children left and ours were the only ones remained. All was well until the owners arrived. Despite our children being both quiet and polite we were made to feel very uncomfortable by the owners who were seated on the table next to us. Comments were made on a number of occasions both directly to us and to each other. I would understand completely if our children had been loud and disruptive to other guests but they are more than aware of how to behave in a restaurant. Whilst the food was excellent, the menu was tatty bits of paper and the wine menu was covered in candle wax. The service was ok but we did have to wait sometime for our wine only to be told they couldn't find it and also our other drinks orders were forgotten. In the past we have been regular visitors to this restaurant but this will be our last visit.
