Sharp cooking in a smart hotel eatery

Despite its name, this smart modern hotel is in Crawley town centre and its Grill restaurant is worth a visit in its own right. It's an airy open-plan room with clean-lined contemporary looks and diligently sourced British produce. Parma ham and saffron risotto give an Italian spin to slow-cooked pork cheeks, while a slab of seared cod from the nearby south coast is matched with peas, fondant new potatoes and red wine jus. Straight-up steaks or a two-way serving of pork belly with crackling and caramelised onion purée keep the carnivores happy, and for pudding, baked vanilla cheesecake is partnered by sherry-glazed fig, glazed Victoria plums and blackberry sorbet.
