Befitting of its setting in one of England’s finest stately homes, the Cliveden Dining Room is extremely grand with high ceilings adorned with crystal chandeliers, ornate marble fireplaces and extravagant antiqued mirrors. From the floor-to-ceiling windows you can take in splendid views of the National Trust gardens leading down to the Thames. The modern British menus change with the seasons, and there are vegan/vegetarian versions of both the à la carte and tasting menu. You might begin a meal with confit lemon sole, broccoli and pomelo. Next a seared Hertfordshire beef fillet comes with barbecued shin, charred leek and shiso, while spiced Victoria pineapple is served with passion fruit, coconut sorbet and lemongrass.

About the area

Discover Buckinghamshire

Buckinghamshire is a land of glorious beech trees, wide views and imposing country houses. Victorian Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli savoured the peace and tranquillity of Hughenden Manor, while generations of statesmen have entertained world leaders at Chequers, the Prime Minister’s rural retreat. Stowe and Waddesdon Manor are fine examples of even grander houses, set amid sumptuous gardens and dignified parkland.

The Vale of Aylesbury is a vast playground for leisure seekers with around 1,000 miles (1,609km) of paths and tracks to explore. Rising above it are the Chiltern Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covering 308sq miles (798sq km). They are best appreciated in autumn, when the leaves turn from dark green to deep brown. In the southeast corner of the Chilterns lie the woodland rides of Burnham Beeches, another haven for ramblers and wildlife lovers. Although the county’s history is long and eventful, it’s also associated with events within living memory. At Bletchley Park, more than 10,000 people worked in complete secrecy to try and bring a swift conclusion to World War II. Further south, an otherwise unremarkable stretch of railway line was made infamous by the Great Train Robbery in the summer of 1963.
