The Bowl Inn has been in the same capable hands for over 20 years - those of the Alley family. But that's just a blink of an eye compared to this place's long history. There's been a dwelling on the site for nearly 1000 years, and it has been licensed since 1550. Stories of secret tunnels and mutinous plots abound, but now that's just woven into the atmosphere that makes this place such a gem.

It is worth venturing out of the city to enjoy a meal at Lilies Restaurant. A la carte starters (from about £5 to £6) include the likes of crab and leek tartlet with walnut bread, or Thai crispy confit chicken served with shallot and chilli jam.

Mains (from about £11 to £20) are a delight. Dishes such as pan-fried Madgett Farm duck breast with potato fondant and a pineapple and sultana compote; or roast sea bass fillets with braised lentil, artichoke, chicory and citrus syrup demonstrate a keen understanding and confident cooking style.

Save room if you can though, as desserts are fine indeed - lemon and passion fruit tart with clotted cream, for example, or a heavenly warm chocolate and clementine cake. And if it all gets a bit too relaxing, you could always check into one of the rooms upstairs?
