Berry’s Restaurant and Terrace
The historic Taplow House Hotel, set in impressive grounds overlooking the Thames Valley, combines the best of English tradition with first-class contemporary style. Begin a visit by enjoying a drink in the cosy bar or on the suntrap outdoor terrace before settling in the elegant dining room with views over sloping lawns and ancient tulip trees. Here, guests dine under sparkling chandeliers at tables dressed in crisp white linen. Immaculate service and magnificent food completes a sensational experience.
The menu has been expertly curated so that there is something on offer for every palate. The chef’s intention is to create classic cuisine refined by modern cooking techniques. Each stunningly presented plate is a feast for the senses, throwing visitors’ decision-making skills into a whir. Enjoy a gorgeous basket of fresh bread to begin, replete with Parmesan batons and miniature tomato loaves. Afterwards, tease your tastebuds with starters of scallops served with vanilla caulifl ower, hazelnut and yuzu; and gin- and tonic-cured salmon accompanied by compressed cucumber, dill mayonnaise, breadcrumbs and caviar. From a choice of fi ve mains – including fish and vegetarian offerings – sample the likes of duck breast accompanied by dates, orange and soy sauce, and lamb with aubergine, polenta, broad beans and onion. Desserts come in a spectacular array of shapes, colours and, most importantly, flavours. You might opt for parfait with cherries and white chocolate, green pistachio sponge and a scattering of edible fl owers, or olive oil cake with peanuts, caramel and sea salt sherbet. Evenings at Berry’s Restaurant are concluded with beautifully presented petits fours of passion fruit jellies and chocolate macarons.
