Review on Royal Crescent Hotel, The Dower House

There's no finer setting for a dreamily elegant, refined and overtly luxurious city hotel than Bath's iconic Royal Crescent - arguably Britain's most glorious Georgian terrace and a masterpiece of European architecture. After a serious refurbishment, the restaurant in the grey-stone Dower House at the back of the hotel has taken on a new identity – although the views over the leafy secluded gardens are unchanged.

Splendid works of art, distinctive fabrics, mink and light olive colour schemes set the tone in the dining room, which is bathed in natural light from big windows. Seasonality rules in the kitchen: during the winter months why not try roast partridge tart with Puy lentils, creamed leeks and red cabbage or venison with baby spinach, wild mushrooms and crisp celeriac. In spring, visitors can expect other delights including a fricassée of rabbit with broad beans, shallot purée and sweet sherry dressing, poached fig-fed chicken with coco bean purée or wild sea bass with smoked eel tortellini, salsify purée and watercress foam.

To conclude, there's also a seasonal twist to desserts like perry soup with pear fritter, pear and caramel charlotte or hazelnut chocolate teardrop autumn truffle ice cream with Marsala syrup. The expertly managed cellar complements the menus and provides ample choice for both the casual diner and the true connoisseur of fine wines.
