Hudson’s by Craig Atchinson, the three AA Rosette restaurant at The Grand Hotel & Spa, has re-opened (Tuesday 22 August 2017), following a change of location and renovation within the hotel.
As part of the five-star hotel’s £15 million refurbishment, Hudson’s has moved from its previous home to a smaller, adjacent room, reducing covers from 60 to 28 to allow greater focus and culinary excellence with every dish.
