Review on Satis House
Charles Dickens was a regular visitor to Satis House when it was a private residence, and the curious name actually pops up in his book Great Expectations. These days, the place is a privately run hotel & restaurant set in three acres of parkland and grounds just off the A12 between Saxmundham and Lowestoft.
New owners are making some impressive improvements to the historic interior, blending its original eighteenth-century features with up-to-the-minute modern comforts. The kitchen is on song at the moment, and visitors can look forward to impressive cuisine with British, European and Pacific Rim overtones.
Menus often feature local fish and game -perhaps scallops with hazelnut and coriander butter, roast woodcock with caramelised parsnips, chicory tartlet and chocolate gravy or pheasant with tagliatelle and horseradish cream. Elsewhere, expect wild mushroom and Taleggio tartlet, Malaysian fish curry and rack of lamb with sweet potato mash, plus desserts along the lines of baked fig pudding or Sauternes crème caramel.
