Review on The Bath Priory

One of the city's most iconic hotels, the Bath Priory stands behind high walls in a residential area a few minutes' drive from the centre of town. It oozes country house elegance, with its Gothic-style Bath-stone exterior, tranquil grounds and gardens (looked after by a trained horticulturist), and superb antique interiors.

True to form, the restaurant is lush intimacy personified, with its high ceilings, garden views, deep burgundy and gold furnishings. Following a refurb, there have also been changes in the kitchen, with Michael Caines MBE coming in as executive chef overseeing the food alongside Head Chef Sam Moody. Their dedication to creative cuisine has seen the restaurant being awarded a prestigious Michelin star in the 2013 Guide.

The food is classic and intricate by turns, promising seasonal starters along the lines of pan fried Scottish langoustines with tempura of pork belly and sauce vierge or seared Brixham scallops with crushed peas and bacon velouté. Mains are in the same vein - witness slow roast fillet of Hinton estate beef with wild mushroom ragout, asparagus and red wine jus. For dessert, perhaps dark chocolate soufflé with dark chocolate and orange sorbet. The wine list is a majestic tome with excellent tasting notes and a fine choice by the glass.
