The city of Bath has been about spa treatments and self-indulgence since Roman times, and the Bath Spa hotel keeps the pampering tradition alive. Its majestic Georgian facade sets a grand tone, running through to the classy Vellore Restaurant in the original ballroom, where pillars and a high-domed ceiling add to a stately air, and engaging staff and a helpful sommelier keep things on track. The kitchen delivers unfussy dishes along the lines of ham hock and chicken terrine with soused vegetables, ahead of slow-cooked Highland lamb shank with colcannon potatoes and red wine jus. To finish, rum baba might come with plum trifle.
