It’s been just over a year since The Gainsborough Bath Spa Hotel opened its doors and it’s been going from strength to strength ever since. Occupying two Grade II listed buildings, this bespoke, up-market hotel found in Bath city centre exudes elegance and is being kind to diners this summer.
Dining at The Gainsborough is an occasion in itself, and to mark the turn of the season they’re offering a smashing two-for-one set lunch menu deal. The offer can be snapped up every Monday to Friday and ends 23rd November.
The menu features seasonal delights from their talented head chef Dan Moon. Each course comprises of three options, which you’d think would make the decision easier but when everything on the menu makes your mouth water, the decision becomes a little trickier.
For starters, chicken liver parfait with almond granola and rhubarb will make tastesbuds tingle, while the classic roast tomato soup with homemade ricotta and Thai basil pesto provides a comforting option.
The main courses continue to demonstrate Dan Moon’s passion for all things fresh. He’s a champion of as-fresh-as-can-be ingredients and forages what he can, which is evidenced in the mains of grilled fillet of plaice with crab risotto, confit fennel and apple, and the wild mushroom risotto with a poached quail’s egg and parsley purée. All of the mains have a smack of earthy, seasonal goodness that you only get when food comes straight from the ground to plate.
You can choose to indulge in two or three courses but when there’s an option for dessert, I think it’d be rude not to go for all three. The buttermilk panna cotta with elderflower sorbet, lemon purée and meringue, and devishly decadent chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and an added crunch of salted caramel popcorn will ensure a sweet ending.
All the dishes at The Gainsborough are colourful and packed full of flavour without being overcomplicated – Dan doesn’t mess around when it comes to his food.
This offer is too good to miss and lets you eat out in style without breaking the bank. A leisurely lunch followed by a stroll around Bath doesn’t sound too bad, does it?
