Square Meal Review of Castle Bow Restaurant at The Castle Hotel ?

The Chapmans have been custodians of Taunton’s magnificent Castle Hotel since the 1950s, and during their tenure the venue’s kitchens have proved a spawning ground for many a top chef – from Gary Rhodes to Phil Vickery. Foodie action now centres on the Castle Bow Restaurant – a spacious brasserie with bare polished tables, mirrored walls and arty lampshades. Young Irish chef Liam Finnegan learned the West Country ways at Gidleigh Park and the Bath Priory, which set him up nicely for a stint at this highly regarded champion of regional produce. His menus vary with the seasons, so expect anything from wild Quantock rabbit with wood blewits, pea ravioli and tarragon to pan-fried Lyme Bay cod with cauliflower, samphire, raisin and capers. Seasonal desserts might include Nynehead strawberries with Champagne sabayon, and the wine list is a family treasure.
