CLASSICAL British dishes with a modern twist plus continental favourites are among the attractions at Offley Place, at Great Offley, near Hitchin, a country mansion house which has been restored as a hotel to the tune of 2million.
Great Offley is reputed to be named after Offa, King of Mercia who had his palace here, and Offley Place was built in the 17th century for Sir Richard Spencer. The restoration features warm, rich tones, bespoke furniture, pieces of art and fresh flowers and each of the 16 bedrooms has been individually designed.
Offley Place is owned by Hamid Sabahipour, with Kevin Whitehouse as consultant general manager. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and the hotel also offers morning coffee and afternoon tea in the Twiddy lounge. Among the starters are roast sea scallops with braised lentils and sorrel; wood pigeon, smoked bacon and walnut salad; and tiger prawns with glazed pork belly, chilli and lime. Main courses include roast seabass with braised leeks and mussel and saffron broth; and roast rump of lamb with parsnip puree and port jus.
