In the shadow of the Eastgate clock, this streetside brasserie makes rather a glamorous, if not inexpensive, lunch-stop after retail therapy in the surrounding streets. It’s far plusher than is typical in a small town hotel. At afternoon tea, head to the Arkle Bar: “a real treat for you and your partner, or for that matter your mum!”“a delightful, special, if expensive” experience “in luxurious surroundings, with fantastic pastries and cakes: what more could a girl want?”.

“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.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
