The Old Bell Ho­tel has re-opened fol­low­ing a £1.1m re­fur­bish­ment. Lo­cated along­side the 12th cen­tury abbey in the cen­tre of Malmes­bury, the restora­tion of the Grade I-listed ho­tel was over­seen by new Gen­eral Man­ager Christophe Dumeige, who said it marks a new chap­ter in the ho­tel’s his­tory and co­in­cides with the ar­rival of a new head chef. Frédéric Fe­tiveau pre­vi­ously worked in a num­ber of Miche­lin­starred restau­rants in Paris and his menu com­bines tra­di­tional Bri­tish clas­sics with a mod­ern twist and Euro­pean in­flu­ences. The new evening menu in­cludes wild sea bass and sea trout tartare with gin­ger­bread, wasabi cream and salmon eggs; fil­let steak and veal kid­ney pie, and slow-roasted golden pear with tonka bean syrup and salted caramel ice cream.

The Old Bell af­ter­noon tea has also re­ceived a makeover with pas­try chef Do­minique Bon’s pas­tries, cakes and home­made mac­a­roons.
