Find this excellent smart bistro, with restaurant pretensions, in the comfortable eponymous hotel.
The excellent romantic atmosphere, has been carried over from its days as the well known 'One Devonshire Gardens' so you can expect oak-panelled walls, comfortable chairs and relaxed lighting.
While a bistro by name, the atmosphere is more formal than might be expected by those seeking a more light-hearted style.
The menu changes a little each month, but a summer snapshot brought the likes of 'Black Pudding Mousse with Poached Egg Salad'; 'Chilled Pea Soup'; ' Chicken Liver & Foie Gras Parfait with Red Onion Marmalade & Toasted Brioche' and 'Pan Fried Scallops with Pork Rillette, Beetroot & Pea Jelly' among the starters.
Perhaps, 'Pan-fried Turbot with Ratte Potatoes and Salmon Consommé'; 'Confit of Duck Leg with Pak Choi and Red Wine Jus'; 'Whole Squab Pigeon with Fricassé of Summer Beans' and 'Rump of Lamb with Ratatouille and Olive Mash' among the mains.
Perhaps finish with 'Gooseberry Fool with Lime Sorbet'; 'Honey-roasted Figs with Goats' Cheese Ice Cream; or Farmhouse Cheese, in peak condition.
No mobile phones.
If you plan ahead, you could stay in one of their comfortable bedrooms.
