Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa


2 rosettes

This extended one-time Georgian hunting lodge has a prime position near the racecourse and enough top-end facilities to satisfy a modern epicure. There are spa treatments aplenty, the hotel is a big hit for weddings and business get-togethers, and there's a rather spruce restaurant called Squires, named in honour of a notorious former owner of the house. The split-level dining room has a comfortable finish and lots of local artworks to give a sense of place. The menu is packed with enticing dishes with decidedly modern British leanings and some creative combinations. Start with corn-fed chicken and ham hock with pickled mushrooms, cauliflower pur?e, caper berries and shallot crisps, or perhaps honey-glazed duck with fondant potato, sprouting broccoli, cherries and almond praline. A busy main course showcasing red mullet comes with fresh herbs and lemon, a crab bonbon, Jerusalem artichoke, beetroot, crayfish velout? and white radish. Finish with a fun 'sweet shop' dessert comprising strawberry and bubble gum pannacotta, banana marshmallow, candyfloss, orange sherbet and macaroons, all exploding with colour, texture and sound effects.
