Review on Queensberry Hotel, Olive Tree Restaurant

Built in 1771 for the Marquis of Queensberry, this palatial townhouse hotel is a fine place in which to enjoy the full-on Bath experience. It's now reaping the benefits of a major refurbishment, which has transformed what was once a bastion of traditional Englishness into the city's first 'contemporary boutique hotel'.

In the basement you will find the Olive Tree Restaurant, which is undoubtedly the Queensberry's pride and joy. Like the hotel itself, this is now thoroughly modern in outlook and style, with its wooden floors and subdued lighting from orange lamps.

The kitchen is in tune with the seasons (check out the seafood BBQs during the summer) and 'seasonal' fixed-price menus make imaginative use of native ingredients in their prime – witness late-autumnal offerings like game galantine with caramelised quince and Cornish cod baked with pancetta, butternut squash and mushroom risotto. Other apposite dishes also feature on the full carte: glazed belly pork with pickled vegetable salad and plum fritters, pot-roast guinea fowl with leek and potato broth, prune and bacon dumplings, for example.

When it comes to desserts, think apple and blackberry charlotte with butterscotch parfait or dark chocolate pannacotta with Griottine cherries and nougatine. The wine list is awesome in its breadth and is loaded with mouthwatering descriptions ('black fruits full of body', for example); it reads like a who's who of contemporary winemaking.
