Harden's survey result
“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.
Amidst “beautiful grounds”, this “very smart” property (a Brownsword Hotel) at best offers “precise” cooking, and “impeccable” service in “a lovely and formal” setting. Prices remain “eye-watering” though, and its ratings slipped a notch this year.
