The Duke & Duchess of Devonshire’s well-known luxury hotel is scenically located on the River Wharfe and one of the more renowned dining destinations in this part of the world. Peter Howarth (who joined in 2019) has yet to regain the Michelin star the property has held on-and-off over the years, but all reports last year were of “exceptional fine dining, with attentive yet unobtrusive service”. You can eat from a three-course menu or the eight-course, £85 ‘Burlington Experience’ tasting menu. Much of the appeal here is being able to raid the duke’s fine, if not particularly budget-oriented, cellar.

Another strong year for the flagship dining room of the Duke & Duchess of Devonshire’s luxurious 17th century hotel, which enjoys a magnificent location “all set on the River Wharfe at Bolton Abbey”. Paul Leonard’s “fabulous” modern cuisine is consistently praised (be it the three-course à la carte or nine-course tasting menu) as is the “lovely” service. The cellar is of some renown here and numerous reporters nominate the wine here as the best they encountered this year.

For 30 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).
