Wonderful cuisine served in elegant and stylish surroundings...
Nestled within the picturesque village of stock is Greenwoods, quite possibly the perfect country retreat. This Grade II listed manor house is home to an elegant hotel, luxury spa and modern restaurant. With its perfectly manicured grounds, it’s the ideal setting for an indulgent break. The relaxing spa offers treatments for both men and women. So, if it’s a weekend away with the girls, or a couple’s treat, their luxurious spa will not disappoint. The rooms within the newly refurbished hotel have been completely restyled to a contemporary shabby chic style. With some rooms boasting antique style furnishings and grand Italian marble bathrooms, Greenwoods is regarded as one of the premier luxury country hotels in Essex. Complimenting the surroundings, is the adjoining Ellis’s Restaurant. Under the guidance of head chef Daniel Holland-Robinson, this exquisite, modern and stylish restaurant creates refined and seasonal dishes. Exquisite brings you the Greenwoods food review...
Ellis restaurant within the grand setting of an elegant mansion house is picture perfect, with a menu to match! To start, I enjoyed the Prawn and Crayfish Tian. A fresh starter, packed full of plump prawns and crayfish, bound together with a silky Marie Rose sauce, it was delicious. Mrs Exquisite opted for the creamy goats cheese bon bons. Served with a tomato and black olive salsa and balsamic caviar, it made for the perfect start. To follow I just had to try their bouillabaisse. Simply the freshest seafood served in a rich Provençale sauce, this one of the best bouillabaisses I have eaten outside of Marseille! Mrs Exquisite couldn’t fault the perfectly cooked pan seared sea bass. Served with Charlotte potatoes, seasonal vegetables and saffron cream, it was a wonderful dish. To complete this superb meal we shared the artisan cheese board. With Greenwood’s homemade chutney, it was perfect to enjoy whilst finishing our wine.
