First night the ten course tasting menu, with matching wine flight. Lots of lovely taste experiences and beautifully balanced for my appetite,... More

We decided to opt for the ten course tasting menu and it exceeded our expectations on every level. The staff were attentive and Rebecca, our sommelier, was very knowledge and had selected wonderful wines to accompany the meal. All of our courses were presented on beautiful crockery and the timing for delivery of all the courses was such that we... More

We try and get to GP once or twice a year and with the change of chef were a little cautious. However, not only are we able to confirm our view that GP is the best hotel and restaurant in UK but also the food is even better. Sorry Michael!!
