This Victorian country house is set in handsome grounds, with quintessentially English features like a putting green, tennis court and croquet lawn. With a well-thought -out wine list; new chefs in the kitchen who are passionate about cooking; and waiting staff who are bending over backwards to please, The Adam Room at the Preston Cross Hotel promises a lot and doesn't fail to deliver.

I started my meal with a classic carpaccio of beef fillet with rocket, lemon and Parmesan shavings while my partner had pan-fried king prawns with lemon, butter and garlic sauce - beautifully presented on a timbale of savoury rice. For the main act: one of the chef's signatures - a fillet of lemon sole stuffed with prawns and garlic and served on a compote of fennel and olives with a white wine and herb cream to finish it off. It was a flavour adventure, constantly delivering contrasting tastes as I progressed through the dish. Meanwhile my partner was triumphing over his 10oz Aberdeen Angus fillet steak, served with a potato and spring onion rosti with lardons, broad beans and a Madeira jus. No mean portions here. We ended the meal by sharing a delicate vanilla panna cotta, which was luxuriously simple after the fulsome main course. The meal was excellent value and ideal for a Sunday lunch outing, and for music lovers there's a jazz programme featured all year round.
