Housed in a listed building dating from 1892, this classy hotel is noted for its great city views, stunning domed roof and modern artwork, as well as this destination brasserie – a stylish room
with pillars, wooden partitions, chandeliers and blue-green seating. Scottish beef and seafood are tossed onto the grill, otherwise the menu covers a lot of ground from smoked duck breast with
grapefruit, sticky date purée and chicory to Pimm’s, orange and strawberry jelly, via Caesar salad, burgers, fish pie, beetroot and onion risotto or braised neck of lamb with apricots, almonds and
mint couscous. Lunch and pre-theatre deals are worth considering too.
