Housed within a 19th century Manor House amidst 18 acres of picturesque landscaped gardens is the Grange Hotel.
A part of the Mercure brand, this four-star hotel can be found on Bristol’s Old Gloucester Road and it offers up all of the luxury and relaxation expected of such an establishment. The contemporary venue is also home to a superb bar and restaurant area.
Inviting both guests of the hotel and those passing by to enjoy a fabulous casual dining experience is the Brasserie at the Grange Hotel. Whet the appetite with one of their exquisite starters, including a glorious prawn cocktail and a sumptuous crispy duck dish, which comes complete with a shredded vegetable salad, chilli, peanuts, and a coriander oil. These work alongside a range of sharers that are ideal for parties looking to experience a variety of flavours, such as the cured ham based antipasti board, and the tortilla chips that are covered with mozzarella, spring onion, guacamole, sour cream and salsa.
Following these is a diverse main course selection that really does offer something for everyone. From the chef’s signature seared sea bream fillet to the succulent roasted lamb rump with herb crushed new potatoes and buttered asparagus, each and every palate is catered for in style. The more carnivorous diner will be more than happy with the array of tender steak and burger options, while the likes of the superfood salad and the Moroccan-spiced vegetable and chickpea tagine are just two of the delectable vegetarian alternatives. As for the traditionalists, the beer battered haddock, garden peas and twice-cooked chips provide a quintessentially British treat.
With the scenic Blaise Castle and the fun-filled Bristol Zoo all just a short drive away, there is much to do in the surrounding area, and in the Brasserie at the Grange Hotelvisitors have the ideal base from which to begin the day’s activities, or to end the day in style.
