“Hotel brasseries don’t usually hold much appeal”, but this “big, slightly blingy, and certainly buzzing” operation provides an unusually high level of polish for a venue in a small provincial city. The food? – from a “fairly standard” menu some reporters feel results are “terrific”, but others say “while prices weren’t awful, I expected more from the place, so the bill felt like it was heavy without delivering”. Top Tip – “fabulous afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings”.

For “dependable quality” (albeit at “London prices”) head to this Paris-style stalwart, which gained a glam Champagne bar during a recent refurb’. Top Tip – the “‘gentleman’s afternoon tea’ (sliders rather than finger sandwiches)” offers an “excellent alternative” to its more traditional counterpart.

A “good choice of dishes” and a “lovely atmosphere” (not least since the recent-ish refurbishment) are just two of the highlights at this buzzy brasserie, set at pavement level next to the city’s iconic clock.

“Reasonable food and lots of buzz” are amongst the plus points of this swish haunt (which “recent refurbishment has made even more attractive”), by the city’s famous clock. You choose from “a compact brasserie menu, with an affordable wine list to match”.
