The brasserie at Stonehouse Court offers a relaxed dining setting for guests and visitors alike, with SoGlos's deputy editor brightening up her Monday with a trip to the 17th century manor house hotel to try out its menu.
Stonehouse Court's refurbished brasserie offers a relaxed setting for guests and non-residents alike to enjoy dining in the restaurant of the 17th century manor house hotel. The menu focuses on serving up informal modern British cuisine, using local, seasonal ingredients where possible in its dishes.
While the starters tempted us, we decided to opt for a selection of the menu’s small plates to whet our appetites, choosing the mini mozzarella and tomato stack; the halloumi with chilli dip; and some rustic bread with balsamic.
The small plates are ideal if you want to enjoy nibbles with a pre-dinner drink, and were just perfect for sharing between the two of us, firmly making a dent in our hunger!
With plenty of tempting choices, we eventually settled on the curry scented cod fillet served with parmentier potatoes, baby spinach and seasonal vegetables. The fish was perfectly cooked, and the cream sauce a welcome accompaniment, but I would’ve liked the curry flavours to have come through a bit more in the dish.
We also sampled the roast chicken breast with gnocchi, wild mushrooms and cream sauce, which was really tasty and flavoursome. It was served with a medley of vegetables which offset the richness of the dish just right.
While dessert isn’t a normal Monday occurrence at home, we couldn’t pass up on the chance to share the chocolate fondant with malt ice-cream and hot cherry sauce. It could’ve been a touch gooier for our liking, but it was still delicious and was the perfect sweet treat to finish our meal with.
The hotel also offers a delightful outside space with views of its picturesque gardens where you can enjoy drinking and dining during the summer months. Sadly we didn’t get the chance to enjoy it on this occasion, but that just means we have an excuse to return!
If you fancy afternoon tea instead, the hotel also serves up delicious teatime treats which can be enjoyed in the gardens or in the cosy lounge area next to the open fire.
