The Bay Tree Hotel

Sheep Street, BURFORD, OX18 4LW

1 rosettes

Built in Cotswold stone, this is a stylishly appointed place with a dining room that was fully refurbished in 2015, and a menu of modern-classic English food. That can only mean scallops on cauliflower purée, and it's a reliable version, with light caramelisation bringing out the sweetness of the shellfish. Mains range from roasted trout and samphire in crab bisque and lemon beurre blanc to capably handled rack of suckling pig with creamed leeks and cider-apple gel. A loosely textured chocolate and blood orange tart with candied peel makes up in flavour what it lacks in structural integrity, or try banana bread millefeuille with salted caramel and banana sorbet.
