Inside the ultra-modern Ralph Lauren-inspired surroundings here even the bistro strives to be something special. Imaginative takes on regular pub grub raise the bar, but the true gems are in such surprises as prawn toast, steamed Australian black mussels and the pulled beef brisket burger. The shredded duck confit and wild mushroom ragout with potato gnocchi seemed a great idea but was less successful in practice, alternating between chewy and stodgy, while the Longy beef pot pie delivered the goods. Fast, friendly service and an extremely professional approach mean this hotel is well worth return visits.
