We stayed at Oak Bank, for the first time, for 4 nights at Easter and were completely bowled over. First and foremost the food is absolutely stunning-in fact some of the best we have ever eaten, including at many top London restaurants. Portion sizes are just right so you never feel you have overdone it and the chef relies on great local produce, skill and an amazing palate, rather than lots of cream and salt. Service is impeccable and the atmosphere is lovely. Oh, and the breakfasts are divine, with extra touches added for Easter. Rooms are spotless and also with lots of extra touches eg a mini decanter of sherry. The hotel is perfectly located for walking - you can go straight out the door in any direction and find great walks - no need for a car at all. Simon and Glynis work incredibly hard to make sure everything is perfect and deserve every success.
