Harden's survey result
“Wonderful food is amply delivered” at this posh country house hotel, riding high after the arrival of Michael Nizzero in January 2017, and where “a tour of the (“fab”) grounds by the head gardener following a meal makes for a perfect celebration and reason to return”; casual sister restaurant The Pantry is also worth a look.
“Wonderful food (and the garden provides a lot of it)” is part of the tradition at this upscale country-house hotel, whose ratings have improved this year under new executive chef Michael Nizzero (whose impressive CV includes a stint at the Waterside Inn Bray). Top Tip: “the excellent cheese trolley includes some delicious local examples”.
“The canapés were so good, we decided to try the tasting menu!” – this “very atmospheric” hotel dining room just outside the city provides an excellent all-round experience: “the taste, presentation, service together with excellent wines make for a most enjoyable meal!”
There’s still the odd sceptic, for whom this plush but slightly “stuffy” Brownsword hotel dining room represents “very poor value for money”, but the majority of reporters this year raved about its “extremely luscious food”, “fabulous” wines and “lovely” (leafy) surroundings.

The Bath Priory Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Back to form under capable Head Chef Michael Nazzero creating superb French inspired dishes. I detected a slight nod to Michael Caines’ time here in classic breads and an outstanding dessert soufflé. Undoubtably expensive but find a mid week lunch deal and it will be a very enjoyable experience that justifies the cost."
