Approached down a very long winding drive off the road. You finally round a corner to be met by a beautiful old country house. The restaurant is part of a hotel but is open to non residents and Micheal Caines provided me with nearly my finest culinary experience only beaten by "Ramsay". This place richly deserves its two Michelin stars and I wouldn't be surprised for it to make it to the three the next time the list is out. Upon arrival we were taken into a fine sitting room for drinks and canapes. We then went into a bay window area overlooking the lovely garden and sat a table that felt like we were in our own private dining area. The food was sublime, one of my dining mates being reduced to tears by his steak it was that good, and the wines were divine. I would recommend chosing the cheese as this was truly great. The big surprise is that it was less than £60 a head, true it was lunch and two of the usual big drinkers, myself included, were the designated drivers (the only down side being the out of the way location meaning someone has to drive unless you stay at the there's a thought for the future)and we chose the prix fixe menu as it was Easter Sunday, but nevertheless it was astonishing value for the experiece that we had.If you are down in the West Country give it a try you will not be disappointed.
