Lainston House Hotel, Sparsholt, Nr. Winchester, SO21 2LT
Lainston House is a gorgeous 17th-Century country house that's home to elegant restaurant, The Avenue. This fi ne dining establishment takes its name from the nearby mile-long avenue of lime trees, and guests can appreciate stunning views over the greenery from their table.

Head chef Olly Rouse has a strong philosophy that stems from the inspiration he gets from the land, as he explains: 'I believe when nature provides us with anything, when it is in abundance, the flavour of these individual elements is paramount - this is the starting point for us.' Indeed, Lainston House's abundant kitchen garden is well-utilised. Ingredients are harvested when in season and stored away ready for diners to enjoy them - and so the menus are able to showcase flavours from all seasons.

The Avenue is open for lunch and dinner, and the à la carte menu features such delights as wild mushroom risotto with truffle and blue cheese, and sea bass with Jerusalem artichoke, Iberico ham and borlotti beans. There's also a particularly noteworthy Sunday lunch that features a display by the resident falconer and his beautiful birds of prey.

Whether it's a family celebration in a private dining room, an informal business meeting, a good old foodie treat for two or simply a gossipy gathering over a cuppa, there's always a perfect excuse to visit Lainston House and The Avenue restaurant
