The Bonham

The Bonham has been a family favourite of ours for quite a while.  It provides consistently good food and a relaxed atmosphere that can be relied upon time and time again to keep the in-laws happy.

So when they were visiting once again at short notice and looking for some dinner, it was a no brainer to saunter over to Drumsheugh Gardens and grab a table.
Located in the Bonham Hotel, the dining room does well not to feel at all like many soul-less hotel dining rooms.  The menu changes regularly, is seasonal, and I'd challenge you not to find something you'll like. 

Glistening wobbling cubes of confit salmon to start were delicious and with a fantastic texture, but were a bit let down by the distraction of a tasteless cracker-like parcel that felt quite pointless.

Sea Bream with a nicoise salad was hard to find fault with; a well cooked piece of fish on a nicely dressed nicoise where each ingredient stood out individually and was well defined.

For dessert, I pretty much inhaled this white chocolate & raspberry creme brulee, with excellent melt in the mouth shortbread on the side.

So, solid good cooking and lovely service once again from the Bonham.  A wee tip if you've not discovered it yet is the Boozy Snoozy weekend lunch deal - £80.00 for a table of four for three courses and two bottles of wine (they'll do the same deal for multiples/more people too).  There's been many a Boozy Snoozy Sunday that has had me swearing at the alarm clock on a Monday morning. 

**Stop Press** They are now doing a Boozy Snoozy dinner on a Thursday night too.  Fridays were made for hangovers.  Go.
