Good Hotel Guide Review
Take a Michelin-starred kitchen, throw in equally impressive bedrooms and a soupçon of laid-back glamour, and you have Paul Kitching and Katie O’Brien’s splendid restaurant-with-rooms. Airy spaces within the Georgian town house, which faces the Royal Terrace Gardens, have been given a light, quirky touch: a vast copy of a painting by Caravaggio; a sculpted Greek-style head; a dazzling contemporary chandelier. An epicurean evening begins in the handsome first-floor drawing room with an aperitif, followed by an accomplished weekly-changing menu served in the elegant dining room with clear sight into the kitchen. The top-notch dishes, with contemporary French influences, include chicken, artichoke, garlic-smoked figs. In the crisply styled bedrooms, plush seating, city or firth views, a soothing palette.
