“A great addition to Gilpin Lodge” – this “funky, delightful restaurant” (the more casual of the hotel’s two dining rooms overseen by Hrishikesh Desai) serves up “bold flavours and panache”, with “a leaning towards India, particularly southern India, but also drawing inspiration from beyond”: “undeniably gorgeous!”

“Love this new addition to The Gilpin” – the hotel’s second restaurant is also run by Hrishikesh Desai – “a funky space” with “an open kitchen, and a counter for more casual dining” in “a separate building (handily nearer the car park) that’s also open for lunch”. It serves “a splendid selection of food with a spicy (mild or otherwise) twist” (“the word is Spice, not chilli, and it’s the first time I’ve had a meal like that that hasn’t left my digestive system complaining the next day)”. On all accounts, results are “superb” with “outstanding, bright, fresh flavours. Just wow!”
