survey result

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

More muted feedback of late on this outpost of the hotel-bistro chain; it's most supported as a “romantic” spot, and for “really great wine list” as you’d expect, but some feel the formula generally has a sell-by – “it looked OK in the late ’90s, but now?”

Summary

A “very lovely” city-centre dining room makes this outpost of the hotel-bistro chain of more-than-usual note; shame the food, if “well presented”, sometimes tends to the “uninspired”.

Summary

“One of the better HdVs!” – indeed, reporters confirm that this is one of the few outlets of the wine-led hotel-bistro chain where “the food is worth waiting for”… as, unfortunately, you may well have to!
