Once part of an extensive farming estate, Deans Place has been a hotel for a century, and its elegant modern decor makes a refreshing backdrop to the Victorian gardens and charming riverside location, while the stylish Dining Room offers the full-dress experience of fine table linen and glassware. The kitchen's contemporary output might see seared scallops paired with coriander purée and mango chilli salsa, followed by whole roasted partridge or pan-fried hake with herb gnocchi and crab dressing. Weekday lunches off the Terrace & Bar menu include the likes of burgers, fish and chips and steaks.
