Great Food in an Amazing Setting; THIS WEEK WE ARE AT THE SPA HOTEL, SALTBURN. KATIE LUNN GIVES HER VERDICT

Article excerpt

Price range: Olives are the cheapest option at PS2.50, the pub grub section are all mainly PS10.95 and 'Slightly posher nosh' from PS12.95 to PS19.95 for steak. Cost of a drink: Pint of Carling, PS3.50, glass of house wine, PS4.25, gin and tonic, PS4.60, and a fresh orange juice PS2. First impressions: The first thing to catch your eye as you enter the eating area is the stunning views of Huntcliff and the coast.

She was a little disappointed with the size of them, having had this often in the past, although the presentation was excellent, as was the taste.

My main was crispy sweet and sour slow cooked beef with sauteed greens and Bombay potatoes (PS12.95). The beef was cooked beautifully and in a very flavoursome sauce. The greens were al dente and the Bombay potatoes were well cooked, not too salty and a perfect accompaniment. I would definitely order this again. My friend ordered the seared seabass fillet confit tomato linguini with mint and coriander chutney. …
