If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a pleasant surprise, should you come across the Chevin Country Park Hotel & Spa.

Set in acres of private woodland and overlooking its own lake, the hotel's Lakeside Restaurant is housed within one of the largest log cabins in the country, which bestows a relaxed ambience from the moment you arrive. Enjoying a drink in the bar beforehand, there's almost an aprés ski feel - the clientele are mellow and the staff relaxed and friendly amid the traditional interior. The view from the restaurant itself is glorious - looking out over the lake, we spotted a moorhen or two taking a dip, while away from the water were a couple of rabbits, out for an evening nibble.

The menu though is a worthy distraction, dinner prices start from only £20 for two courses or £24 for three. Traditional cuisine is given a modern twist; fruits and berries accompany fish dishes and salads are given a fresh look with new meats and dressings. Spiced courgettes are teamed with a citrus salad and yoghurt sauce and salami is the chosen companion for a pea shoot and poached egg salad - and that's just for starters.

Attention to detail is excellent and my feisty tomato and basil soup with just the right complexity of flavour was accompanied by fresh, nutty bread and a choice of three butters. Baked, herb-encrusted oyster mushrooms with a marvellous earthy forest mushroom purée were a delight, as was my guest's Cajun-inspired sea trout with mango, chilli and lime salsa with a sugar snap cream, both accompanied by a thoughtful selection of crunchy vegetables. A trio of sorbets in their own flavoured baskets and sauces proved the perfect conclusion - unless of course you prefer to round things off with a stroll around the lake.
