The Grand Hotel & Spa, York

Station Rise, YORK, YO1 6HT

2 rosettes

Hard by the city's historic walls, the grand Edwardian edifice built as the headquarters of the North Eastern Railway has been stylishly repurposed as a luxury hotel, seamlessly blending palatial original features with 21st-century facilities, a swish spa down in the former vaults, and up-to-date dining in Hudsons, a smart, brasserie-style grill room. Straight-up steaks are sourced from a Yorkshire farm - a 10-oz rib-eye, for example, served with proper chips, Portobello mushrooms, confit tomato and Café de Paris butter, but the kitchen's imaginative modern repertoire appeals to a wider audience than the merely carnivorous. For starters, there's dressed Whitby crab, the rich brown meat leavened by sour apple jelly and sorrel sorbet, and sticking with a fishy theme, main-course stone bass with fennel, langoustines, herbs, buckwheat and bisque. Otherwise, pine-roasted wild venison with on-trend parsley root, choucroute, Romanesco and juniper and orange jus might catch the eye, and to finish, more local flavour in the shape of Yorkshire ginger parkin dolled up with rhubarb, vanilla parfait and orange.
