Service throughout our meal was friendly and efficient at all times with Losehill House Hotel offering a marvellous retreat for anyone staying in the region.
Foodwise, LHH offers a Table d'Hote Dinner Menu. Ours, possibly an extended version, allowed us to try a number of plates.
To start the meal we had Tomato and Mozzarella Salad and Fillet of Derbyshire Lamb and Summer Vegetable Broth. The tomato and mozzarella was intriguing not least because it came with a shot glass containing spherifications of Bloody Mary in a tomato consommé. It provided a nice twist to an old classic. The lamb and summer broth was excellent with the lamb offering up great flavours and the freshness of the summer broth an appropriate foil.
This was followed by a Fillet of Mackerel and Cucumber which was cooked well and again offered good fresh flavours. The addition to the plate of a tartare of mackerel in a cucumber roll also gave a nice little extra.
Fish mains followed. Sea Trout and Herb Quinoa with Wild Asparagus and Pea Yolk, and Monkfish, Crab Cake with Sorrel and Samphire. The pea yolk was a pea spherification which was playful but the trout was a over cooked rendering it a little dry. Portion sizes were also quite large which will no doubt please some but risks over-filling the diner prematurely in a multi course meal.
Desserts, were Lemon and Strawberry Meringue Pie and Chocolate and Salt Caramel Delice and Tonka Bean Ice Cream.
