Jamie Oliver Review

What a great way to start the week! This lovely review has just been posted on the Jamie Oliver website. Please forgive us for sharing it with you…

Sitting just outside the famous town of Kirkby Lonsdale, this centuries-old inn is something very special; really special; extremely special. I’m going to run out of superlatives at this rate. Oh my, the room (Tatham Suite) and oh my, the food.

Chef Brent Hulena, a New Zealander still in his late twenties, blew our minds with his combinations. We had the taster menu and, without fear of hyperbole, the highlight of my culinary year was his venison tartare with fennel, mustard and coffee. Crazy but genius, beautifully presented and yet understated. I know venison isn’t to everyone’s taste, especially a raw version, but for sustainable, ethically raised, high-yield meat, there is simply little better.

In terms of a combination of room and meal, it was the pinnacle of class and attention to detail – it was extraordinary.
