Best Western The Connaught Hotel

30 West Hill Road, West Cliff, BOURNEMOUTH, BH2 5PH

2 rosettes

With sandy beaches stretching below, the grand old Connaught rules the roost on Bournemouth's West Cliff. The Blakes restaurant overlooks the hotel's own gardens, where candlelit outdoor tables are popular on balmy summer evenings. Inside, the lightly formal tone makes an agreeable ambience for traditionally based British dishes. Accurately seared scallops make an early appearance in a starter alongside celeriac puree, salsa verde, micro fennel and pea shoots. That might be followed by rump of lamb, pistachio, honey and mustard glaze, baby carrots, gnocchi, sweetbread fritter and Madeira jus. Chocolate and caramel tart with raspberry glaze is a typical dessert.
