The Spa Hotel


2 rosettes

Famously one of the UK's spa towns, Tunbridge Wells has no shortage of buildings built in the 18th century to capitalise on that particular boom business. There's a spa here of course in this fine-looking mansion, but it's a 21st-century version offering full pampering and restorative services. The house has 14 acres of grounds, so there's nature's therapy available for free. There's a brasserie on site (Zagatos), while the main Chandelier Restaurant with its grand proportions and elegant finish provides something rather more refined. Begin with a raviolo with a richly satisfying lobster filling and a foamy shellfish sauce on top, or a salad of wood pigeon, quail's egg and air-dried ham. Main course fillet of red mullet is served with fregola pasta enriched with mussels, clams, scallops and squid. Among meat options, rump of Cornish lamb comes in the company of risotto packed with wild garlic and broad beans. Among desserts, dark chocolate fondant is soft and yielding in the all the right places and is partnered with a substantial chunk of honeycomb and tonka bean ice cream.
