The Olive Tree at the Queensberry Hotel

Russell Street, BATH, BA1 2QF

3 rosettes

It may have been original owner the 8th Marquess of Queensbury who had this splendid row of townhouses built in 1771, but Laurence and Helen Beere have worked tirelessly to develop it into a top-ranking boutique hotel. Built from Bath stone, this remains one of the most impressive addresses in the spa city. The owners' passion for hospitality have created a winning blend of traditional meets contemporary, resulting in civilised spaces that seem almost timeless. A major revamp in 2015 saw a refurbishment of the kitchen and dining room in The Olive Tree restaurant downstairs. The dynamic cooking and sharp technical skills of head chef Chris Cleghorn is showcased via a choice of seasonal tasting menus, including an impressive one for vegetarians. Whichever route you take, the classically inspired modern British dishes show an impressive commitment to local produce. Flavour combinations are well considered and intelligently executed - pan-fried scallops, for example, with shellfish bisque, pak choi and grapefruit, followed by a main course of slow-cooked brill with creamed and charred leek, shimeji mushrooms, black truffle and Noilly Prat sauce. Blackberry parfait with 72% Valrhona chocolate, stem ginger and blackberry sorbet brings things to a close.
