Fifteen of our favourite restaurants with rooms

3 years ago

What’s more of a treat than a meal at a really good restaurant? A meal at a really good restaurant where you get to stay over for the night, obviously. Whether it’s a special occasion, or you just feel the urge to get away from it all, this little lot will feed you well and then offer you a comfy bed to roll your wine-fogged and carb-comforted body into afterward.

On our list are bedrooms in whitewashed country pubs with views of the lush northern countryside, luxurious suites in grandiose, historical manors set in acres of Jane Austen-esque gardens and luxurious, ultra-modern hotels for the country dweller in search of a city break.
