Situated at the gateway to the Dales on the Bolton Abbey Estate, the Burlington
Restaurant is one of Yorkshire's finest foodie destinations, housed within the
beautiful Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa. The hotel itself dates back to the early
17th century, and the surrounding area is said to have attracted and inspired the
likes of Wordsworth and Turner.

It's very easy to see why the Burlington has gained an impressive four AA rosettes - the menu showcases the talents of chef Adam Smith, and the exceptional quality and exquisite presentation of his food never fails to delight. It is particularly admirable how Smith makes use of the herbs, edible flowers, fruits and vegetables from the kitchen garden to enhance his fine seasonal dishes, and is said to particularly enjoy cooking with lemon verbena and aromatic bronze fennel.

On the evening of our visit we were greeted by friendly staff and swiftly shown into the elegant cocktail lounge, where we enjoyed a selection of delightful canapés whilst perusing the impressively extensive wine list (the Burlington is renowned for keeping one of the finest wine cellars in the country) and tempting à la carte menu. I started with rich seafood broth, made with flaky smoked mackerel and delicious Whitby crab with a serving of fresh, palate-cleansing grapefruit. My partner opted for the scallops served with crispy pig's head croquettes and adorned with avocado and radish. For me, the star of the show was the main course, which comprised juicy beef rib with creamy mushroom purée and salt-baked turnip with the most tender ox cheek I have ever eaten.

For dessert, my partner enjoyed the sumptuous chocolate ganache, while I discovered the pleasures of the cheese trolley. The highlight for me was the intensely rich and tangy Stichelton blue - a truly delightful after-dinner treat.
We wished we could have stayed longer and had a peaceful night's sleep in one of the individually decorated, luxurious bedrooms, but this will have to be something we look forward to on our return visit
