Typical of many British hotels with fine dining restaurants, the actual hotel is not in the same league as the food. This is a destination restaurant for the Central region: young rising star chef Jason Hodnett runs a tight ship, executing a very good seven-course taster menu. The dinner atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are warm and professional. What the place needs is a total re-vamp. The furnishings are worn and shabby in the small public areas, with wood-chip wallpaper and cheap-looking tables and chairs, and the chairs in the bar room had dirty upholstery. Just a general lack of care and imagination in the decor. Our room (in The Forge annex) was okay and spacious, but there were frayed towels and ugly broken panels in the bathroom where the only "shelf" space was an old chipped chair. Some of these things could be addressed quickly and inexpensively: how many times is this the case . . . I can never understand this neglect. And why are there so many reviews which don't bring these things to public attention? It's the only way we can do our bit to try to improve the standard of accommodation in the UK!!
