NileGuide Expert tip:
Most extraordinary fireplace, local produce and fish is delivered daily, a Bath favorite.
For some of the finest food in greater Bath, you have to go outside the center to Midsomer Norton. The kitchen has an absolute passion for fresh ingredients and food cooked to order, and the chefs believe in using produce grown as near home as possible, though the Angus beef comes in from Scotland and the fresh fish from the coasts of Cornwall and Devon. Natural flavors are appreciated here and not smothered in sauces. Even the breads, ice creams, and petits fours are homemade. The kitchen team is expert at chargrilling.
Some of the best-tasting starters include crab salad with tarragon mayonnaise and tomato sorbet, or else a terrine of wood pigeon. Chicken and braised chicory with a raspberry vinaigrette is yet another appetizer. Main courses that we highly recommend include roast quail with spinach, ricotta cake, and a sage cream sauce, or else roast filet of brill with caviar butter and a sweet-potato fondant.
