    Located in Gilpin Hotel is their house restaurant. Open to residents and non-residents, there are several different rooms, all of which serve the same menu and give you the chance to be a little more secluded.

    We also felt there was a very special feel to the restaurant, we were instantly aware of this when we first entered the building. The staff were very helpful and attentive, it was a great dining experience overall.

    To begin we ordered Seared Partridge Crispy Breast, with Beetroot and Pickled Pear. And we chose their 'Soup of the Day', which was Celeriac, with Artisan Sour Dough, Sea Salt Butter.

    For the wine we decided on a fine glass of of Chateauneuf-Du-Pape, Roger Sabon, Rhone Valley, France. A full bodied, sweet, fruity wine, that went well with the Seared Partridge. The soup was paired with a glass of Gavi De Davi, Piemonte, Italy. A fruity wine that's very light on the tongue, goes down perfectly with soup.

    “I would not hesitate to recommend the Gilpin House Restaurant.”

    For our main course we had the Chateaubriand for two people. This was a delicious course, a Châteaubriand of Buccleuch Beef, with Ox Heart Tomato, Wild Mushrooms, Béarnaise Sauce, and Gaufrette Potatoes. Accompanied with a couple of glasses of Plaisir De Siaurac, Lalande Pomerol, an Italian wine with a full red colour and a punchy flavour.

    We didn't have any desserts. Although there were some tempting offers on the menu, we were sufficiently full after the main dish. We found the whole experience to be very efficient and enjoyable from start to finish. From the ambiance in the restaurant, to the welcoming staff, and the superb food and wine.

    I would not hesitate to recommend the Gilpin House Restaurant, and would dine there again.
