Review on The White Lion Hotel, Pepperpot Brasserie
Civil War connections and centuries of history lie behind this venerable coaching inn, which dates back to 1510 and still has its quota or ancient timbers, plaster walls and other original features. Henry Fielding wrote parts of 'Tom Jones' here, and the hotel has seen countless famous faces from stage and screen over the years.
Meals are served in the oak-beamed Pepperpot Brasserie (which takes its title from an old nickname for the local church), although there's nothing quaint about the food on offer. Starters such as pan-seared mackerel with grain mustard potato salad or smoked venison 'wafers' with sweet cherry and balsamic dressing might precede baked hake and smoked salmon with a Parmesan and parsley topping or breast of duck with sweet potato mash, chocolate and black cherry sauce. As a finale, try strawberry mille-feuille with orange and Cointreau sauce or mango and ginger crème brûlée.
