The Hare & Hounds, Bath, Somerset
A gorgeous inn, with chic interiors, a huge decked terrace and sublime local fare served al fresco, with ten-mile views over the city all the way to Solsbury Hill. A conservatory, decked terrace, sprawling garden and a vast mullioned window in the bar all face the right way – you gaze on fields where vegetables for the restaurant are grown.
You might find goat’s cheese and honey terrine, beer-battered haddock and hand-cut chips, dark chocolate mousse and clementine purée. At the bar, traditionally brewed Butcombe and Hare & Hounds Ale stand side by side, backed up by excellent wines.
