The Northgate's style is uber-foodie and metropolitan, with rooms and public spaces decorated with elegant bespoke fabrics and wall coverings, a restaurant and chef who celebrate food and cookery with a chef's table, and a bar that likes to mix a cocktail or two, including creations like their own rhubarb cosmopolitan.


Service is excellent - attentive without being overbearing - and facilities extend to the restaurant, which has a 12-person chef's table, and a funky bar that's popular with non-residents, who flow out onto the large outdoor terrace in summer. There's also a small carpark.

The Northgate: modern European cuisine, seasonal dishes, regional produce, bar snacks, cocktails. Food served Weds-Sun, 12-3pm and 5.30-8.30pm. Mains from £15.
