The 1,200 acre Netherwood Estate sits on the Worcestershire-Herefordshire border and plays host to this delightfully restored barn overlooking arable farmland. Old agricultural artefacts unearthed during its restoration adorn the walls and, while the interior is design-led, it also has a certain rustic charm. As much as possible is sourced from the estate: the fabric for the napkins and chair-coverings is woven in the on-site mill; veg is grown in the kitchen garden; and apples, rapeseed oil, flour and honey all come from the grounds. The concise, daily changing menu comprises classically inspired dishes with modern overtones and an unfussy, pared-back style: flavour is to the fore, contrasts are sophisticated and there’s good balance between the courses. The delicious bread is a must and service is endearing.
