Food and Travel (UK) - - 200 th Issue - Our friends

on the con­ti­nent have been at it for decades, but un­til the midNoughties there was lit­tle on home soil to ri­val the French au­berge. But as trav­ellers put their epi­curean feet for­ward, the restau­rant scene re­sponded. Where it was once inns pro­vid­ing us with post­pran­dial beds, to­day it’s restau­rants with rooms and re­treats that of­fer good food. Since 2007 – when Food and Travel coined the term ‘gourmet bolt­hole’ – we’ve seen a stag­ger­ing num­ber of launches from chef­s­cum-hote­liers. They sate our grow­ing pen­chant for well-pro­duced dishes us­ing the finest sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents with good proven­cance, of­fer­ing bed­rooms within stum­bling dis­tance of the din­ner ta­ble.
