Visited Hipping Hall last week, largely influenced by the fact it's one of the restaurants/hotels Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon visit in series one of The Trip (there's a bit about what the filming was like on the hotel's website).  We didn't do any impressions of The Two Ronnies over dinner, but that was mainly because the food completely dominated our conversation.  It was bonkers good, it was spectacular - they even won at desserts, which are so hard to get right.  We both had the chocolate sphere filled with custard, sat alongside crunchy honeycomb and salty caramel with a scoop of mandarin ice cream.  If I could have had three courses of that, I would have.  Also, I know this isn't important to everyone, but the bread and butter were frickin' perfect.  The hotel itself is everything you want a country house to be - cosy, warm, luxurious (we even had a little sitting area in our room!) and surrounded by tiny brand new lambs and fat old mucky cows.  It's also quite near Brontë country so you can stand in a nearby field and shout for Heathcliff/pretend to be Kate Bush.  And you definitely should.
