Roadside hotel with stylish restaurant

Open all year
Private dining
Wines by the glass

This hotel and restaurant just off the A1 has business bases covered, beauty therapies aplenty, and lots of room for functions. When it comes to dining, there's a bistro in the St Leger bar, but the main event is the oak-panelled Restaurant Bar 1650, with its own art deco-style bar area and modern chandeliers to add a touch of glamour. Start with potted pork with beetroot textures and an apple lolly, or an indulgent truffle brûlée with goats' cheese vol-au-vent. Move on to rainbow trout with sweet and sour fennel, or steak cooked on the grill, and finish with deconstructed blueberry cheesecake.
