The gorgeously refurbished Great Northern Hotel is the setting for this stylish brasserie, which takes its name from the colours of the livery of old London and North Western Railway carriages.
The award-winning interiors evoke the classical elegance and romance of old railway stations, as floor-to-ceiling windows and hand-blown glass light filaments warm the all-day dining room.
Just like the dining cars of old, the restaurant serves from dawn through to midnight. At the weekend, service starts at 8am for breakfast and brunch, then lunch, Sunday roasts or dinner and cocktails until late.
Acclaimed chef Mark Sargeant heads up the kitchen and the menu is built around the finest British ingredients cooked simply, but creatively. There are also luxury takes on classic British dishes using British ingredients, with Orkney scallops, Scottish venison, and Paddock Farm Tamworth pork. A highlight is the 28-day aged prime beef, sourced from Mey Selections and grilled in a charcoal Inka oven at 500°C for a distinctive flavour.
Also on the menu are small plates, sharing feasts for two, a selection of vegetarian dishes, and puddings, cheese and savouries to finish. Cocktails, wine and champagne, spirits, beer and liqueurs make up the extensive drinks menu.
