Assured cooking in a former convent

Set in a former convent, the fine dining restaurant of the Temple Gate Hotel is an impressive space with its soaring hammerbeam roof and striking contemporary decor. There's a capable hand in the kitchen, and daily specials mean that seasonal produce is well represented. A starter of goats' cheese tartlet with roast peppers, squash, smoked salmon, basil and pine nuts is a little over-elaborate, and it's the simpler ideas that work best - the likes of beef sirloin with glazed shallots and green peppercorn sauce, and Baileys-filled profiteroles with butterscotch sauce for dessert.
