“Delightful restaurant ”

The Sorrel Restaurant
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Ston Easton Park is a breathtaking Palladian mansion set in idyllic Somerset countryside, and with this location it���s own Sorrel Restaurant has to be of the very highest standards. And with two AA Rosettes and reams of glowing reviews to its name, the Sorrel Restaurant does indeed provide storybook countryside dining, offering the most elegant gourmet cuisine in gloriously elegant classically inspired surroundings. Open to non-residents as well as those lucky enough to be taking a room within the splendid mansion, the Sorrel Restaurant overlooks the River Norr as it runs through green parkland, the ideal outlook for diners enjoying chef Matthew Butcher���s exquisite British cuisine, made with local ingredients including an abundance from Ston���s own kitchen garden.

Visited restaurant whilst staying overnight in hotel.
3 course menu is very reasonably priced.
Staff are very attentive and clearly very familiar with menu and where the food is sourced from.
Had a crab starter, beef main and cheese and biscuits for dessert. All lovely tasting and well presented.
Beautiful setting that feels quite intimate.
Wine and champagne fairly expensive given the reasonable rate of food and accommodation but not outrageous.

All in all a very nice experience.

Thank Lizie T

Very elegant but otherwise really nil to recommend it. Acceptable sweet otherwise food would be considered poor in a back street café. Basic wines at absurd mark up of more than four times the supermarket retail prices. ( I checked up on this )

Modern and delicious food served with grace and in beautiful surroundings.
We enjoyed the 3 course a la carte menu which was very reasonably priced and great choice and so delicious.

This really is a top 5 restaurant EVER .. it tops all the posh nosh London offers and sat in such a sublime setting as a guest, my only concern is that the restaurant isn't full up every day. Love it!

I have just posted a review of the hotel where this restaurant is. Unfortunately there is too much wrong - mainly a conglomeration of little things which added up to disappointment - with the hotel, but we ate in this restaurant each evening and we had really good food.
I can't see this restaurant in the AA Guide, but mine is last year's so perhaps it's in now, the ownership has changed quite recently so perhaps that explains this. But this cooking would deserve something approaching three red rosettes. My guess is that it would perhaps get just two of them, as although the food is really good, the presentation of the experience falls a bit short - as does the hotel itself.
That said, I started with seared scallops and black pudding in a sort of croquette. That was excellent. My main course was beef fillet, again really good but I was given two very small (I mean that!) pieces of meat. My wife had the lamb rump and she probably got about three times the meat I had. This isn't right. My wife's starter of salmon and beetroot was also very good. Deserts were up to the standard of the earlier courses. I had cheese and biscuits, they described it as "Somerset cheese" on the menu, and it was exactly that. Such a nice contrast with the up themselves establishments which still think that the only country which can produce good cheese is France.
The wine list is good, too. Not too extensive, but there are some really unusual wines - and what we had was top notch.
If you want a top rate meal then try this place.
