Amazing experience, really nice setting and decor at the Midland Favourite dishes on the signature menu were the pickled mussels, tater ash and forced Yorkshire rhubarb with baked English custard! Yummy! Thoroughly recommend this great restaurant!

Excellent meal at The French as always. A wonderful hard-working team that always greet you like a returning friend. A number of new dishes since my last visit - the Mussels and Pollock were 2 highlights, yet the welcoming hot broth, sourdough and beef butter is always heaven Many thanks to Kamila for her work as Sommelier - a number of superb wine choices. Great to dine at the Chef’s Counter once again and watch Charles and Luis prep their dishes. Until next time - thank you Adam and team.

Outstanding quality and really enjoyed how Northern it was. You knew you wouldn't get this food anywhere else than the North of England. Let down a bit by the very dated hotel public spaces which are badly in need of a major upgrade.

A truly memorable experience. We were greeted and seated very quickly in a very polite manner. Table service was perfect and the food was easily the best we have ever had. The restaurant itself is very intimate, each dish was presented by the chef who made it and each ingredient explained.
