5 star hotel with classic food from Micheal Caines - has now been taken over by Michael Wignall (as at Feb 16) and retained its 2 Michelin stars for the 2017 Michelin guide
This is a wonderful option to go for if you happen to be in the area over a few days or want to do something special. The hotel itself is one of classic luxury and from the moment our canapés were served in the library / lounge whilst we waited for our table to be ready, we knew we were in exceptionally good hands. The dishes were in a superb class and the attention to detail in their design as well as the genuinely delicate flavours (the cumin and curry essence with the pigeon and soft remoulade with the salmon were frankly a treat to behold. Staying here for an evening and having the full blown tasting menu would not be a cheap weekend but equally would get any man out of a sticky patch with his other half or gain instant brownie points and enough credit to last quite a long time if he were to treat his other half with this as a special occasion. My only regret is not being in a position to be doing the latter, which I greatly look forward to doing as I know it will be a truly great experience.
