Channel 4's the Grosvenor hotel in Torquay revamps its restaurant

The Grosvenor hotel in Torquay, which has gained notoriety through Channel 4's The Hotel reality show, has relaunched its restaurant, the Inn at the Grosvenor following a revamp.

The restaurant, which has undergone a refurbishment, has also appointed a new head chef, Ricco Jenkins, who previously completed an apprenticeship at London's Claridge's hotel.

The re-launched Inn offers an eclectic menu, designed to appeal to a wide variety of customers but with a focus on quality, locally-sourced produce.

Typical dishes will include West Country Beef steaks, Exmouth Bay Mussels steamed in Thatcher's Cider Cream and baked Somerset camembert. The menu will also feature a Brixham market fresh catch of the day. Desserts will include a modern version of Black Forest gateau, comprising Kirsch flavoured ice cream, topped with black-cherry compote and chocolate truffle.

Keith Richardson, chairman of Richardson Hotels, which owns the Grosvenor hotel, said: "Guests should never have to compromise on food quality. Food in British hotels is often over-priced and mediocre in quality at best.

"My aim is to offer a meal that surpasses expectations of quality for the whole family but won't break the bank. We want customers to go and rave about their experience to their friends and family. There's no better advertising for a restaurant than recommendation through word of mouth."
