The Grange Hotel

1 Clifton, YORK, YO30 6AA

2 rosettes

Behind the pillared frontage of this classic 1829 townhouse is a designer-led interior of some panache, with inviting sofas, paintings on the walls, open fires and heavy curtains. The restaurant itself is divided into three distinct sections, all flamboyantly decorated, with walls and ceiling painted to create a tented effect, a horseracing mural, theatrical drapes at the windows in the red area and corners and alcoves with silver birch branches covered in twinkly lights. The cooking makes an impact, with the kitchen clearly taking a broad-based attitude, moving with the times and picking up ideas from near and far. How about 'pastrami' of salmon with wild garlic and micro salad, or another well-balanced starter of sliced smoked duck with figs, radishes and maple dressing? Diehards could go for a grilled steak as main course; others could opt for lamb loin and sweetbreads offset by pickled tomatoes and herby couscous. End with an attractively plated pudding such as hot chocolate fondant with white chocolate chip ice cream.
