Hurley House Hotel

‘No expense spared’ is the first thought that springs to mind when stepping inside Hurley House Hotel. Open for less than a year, it was built from scratch on the site of a derelict 18th-century pub and slots effortlessly into its sleek Home Counties surroundings.

Leather, granite and oak feature prominently in the bar and dining room, while the ten understated chic bedrooms are decked out with luxurious Lefroy Brooks bathroom fittings, monogrammed 1,000-thread bed linen and more Farrow & Ball than you can shake a paintbrush at.

The drawcard here, though, is chef Michael Chapman’s food. The menu from the former head chef of Michelin- starred Royal Oak at Paley Street is bursting with seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Start with burnt leeks, salt-baked celeriac, Berkswell cheese and foraged mushrooms, or Cornish brown crab with blood orange. Mains are faultless. Berkshire hogget comes with braised shoulder cannelloni, swede and carrots, while the Gressingham duck breast and confit leg croquette with heritage beetroots and hazelnuts will have you scraping the plate. Don’t deny yourself dessert – order the chocolate ganache with feuilletine and peanuts. Doubles from £160.
