Review on The Metheun Arms
The Methuen Arms is an award winning boutique inn set in the pretty market town of Corsham with its cobbled streets. Historic Bath is just eight miles away, and the beautiful stately home of Corsham Court in a park designed by Capability Brown is also located in the village. The building can trace it's history back to 1463, when it was an impressive Tudor house belonging to the Nott family.
Nowadays, pride of place goes to its restaurant where chef Leigh Evans, who climbed the culinary ladder at critically acclaimed establishments such as Coombe Manor, The Chequers and The Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath has been awarded three prestigious AA Rosettes for his accomplished cooking. The kitchen takes a modern British view of things with carefully sourced ingredients, including produce from their own kitchen garden. Among the clever ideas on offer you might fancy duck Scotch egg, plum, hoi sin, cucumber and spring onion or seared scallops, chorizo, red pepper, shallot dressing and haricot bean to start. Main courses then work their way through the likes of haunch of venison, smoked dauphinoise, red cabbage, blackberries, kale and roast onion or from the sea fillet of brill, girolles, parsnips, braised beef and truffle mash. Desserts are also pretty showy offerings witness burnt passion fruit cream, mango salsa, crisp coconut and coconut ice cream or lemon cheesecake, crème fraiche, rosemary, lemon Turkish delight and meringue.
There are 14 luxurious appointed rooms should you wish to stay over and explore this lovely area of Wiltshire further.
