There is something that feels rather illicit about being at The Saxon. This luxurious hotel, right in the heart of the city yet hidden discretely away on a random tree-lined road in Sandhurst. I tend to combine my visits with a spa treatment. The very definition of luxury: time, pampering and a sumptuous lunch after. I have yet to try the very lauded Luke Dale Roberts X restaurant – that will have to wait for next year.
The Qunu Restaurant is perfect in colder months, but for a really relaxed and light lunch during the summer months, nothing beats The Terrace, which overlooks the pool and some of the grounds. The food. Uncomplicated and simple. It is not an extensive menu either. Salads and toasted sandwiches. Their main dining menu has a bit of everything from fish to pasta, to chicken and beef burgers. If you are there for drinks only – there is a wide and varied Tapas Bar Menu and a Platters Menu to choose from.
Highly recommended is also their Morning and Afternoon tea.
