AA Notable Wine List 2018-19

The Rosette award for this establishment has been suspended due to a change of chef and reassessment will take place in due course. The grand old Edwardian pile by the city’s medieval walls started life as the headquarters of the North Eastern Railway and its handsome features and lavish scale were ripe for reinvention as today's luxurious hotel. The place boasts the sort of swish facilities we expect in the 21st century – classy bedrooms, a glossy spa, and an elegant cocktail bar for a sharpener before dining in Hudson's, a brasserie-style venue with a sophisticated sheen and professional service to match.
