My husband and I recently visited Woollcott House Restaurant, a lovely country house restaurant set in seven acres. We met friends for Sunday lunch who had been there several times and were greeted by a lovely young lady who turned out to be the proprietor's daughter, Claire.

We began with a glass of Champagne in the small bar where we p e rused the menus - excellent value at just £18.95 for three courses. There was a choice of five dishes for each course, including smoked salmon and prawns, as well as a couple of supplements such as seared scallops with bacon and fresh ginger, reasonably priced at £6. Having ordered in the bar, we were shown to a lovely round table dressed with a white linen cloth and napkins, and adorned with fresh yellow roses.

My starter was beautifully presented - marinated herrings with red onion potato salad - and the following main course was equally good. I chose Scotch sirloin of beef, carved on the gu'ridon trolley in front of us, and accompanied by home-cooked roast potatoes and roast parsnips. Top marks too for the fresh vegetables; Savoy cabbage, creamed swede, carrots and broccoli were silver served to us and left on the table if we required more.

Fresh cream meringue - wonderfully chewy in the middle - with fresh fruit followed, and we finished with coffee and liqueurs s e rved with truffles - an extra £2.50 but the coffee pot was bottomless. We took a walk around the lovely grounds to try and wake up before our journey home. I just wished we had booked one of the double ensuite rooms upstairs so we didn't have to drive home.
