Review on Riviera at Hillbark

A fabulous house in a fabulous location, Hillbark stands majestically amid 250 acres of secluded grounds at the heart of the Wirral Peninsula. The extraordinary building, with its intricate black-and-white timbered exterior, was actually built in Birkenhead in 1891 by soap magnate Robert Hudson. Thirty years later it was moved, brick by brick, to its current site where it has become one of the region's most exquisite luxury hotels. Visitors marvel at the idiosyncratic hotch-potch of features on show: the fireplace from Sir Walter Ralegh's house, the William Morris stained glass windows, the medieval church screen doors and much more.

Pride of place, foodwise, goes to the immaculately laid out Riviera restaurant with its opulent trappings, lavish gilt armchairs, magnificent Robert Adam fireplace and fine silverware. The kitchen works to a modern European repertoire with strong French overtones, as in Dover sole with fennel risotto and squid ink.

Alternatively, try the Hillbark Grill, which specialises on 'hand-crafted' burgers, steaks and seafood cooked on a bespoke American chargrill. The wine cellar offers a big choice of more than 100 fine wines from around the globe.
