In a culinary evolution set to tantalise palates, The Francis Hotel in the historic city of Bath unveils an exquisite array of French-inspired dishes, artfully curated by the esteemed Head Chef Cyril Royer. Both hotel patrons and local residents are cordially invited to embark on a gastronomic voyage to the heart of France, courtesy of Boho Marché’s innovative new menus. These culinary offerings represent a reverent celebration of the restaurant’s diverse culinary influences. Hailing from the picturesque town of Limoges, France, Cyril Royer has meticulously crafted a repertoire of dishes that seamlessly merge timeless French classics with an elevated gourmet twist.

The pièce de résistance of this new culinary journey is the dazzling brasserie menu, featuring beloved French staples, such as moules-frites, confit of duck cassoulet, and a delectable côte de boeuf designed for sharing. Adding depth and variety to the menu, Boho Marché introduces delectable options like slow-roasted cauliflower steak and the tantalizing beetroot tarte tatin. For starters, guests will be presented with an array of exquisite choices, including the indulgent lamb rossini, the perfectly executed twice-baked cheese soufflé, and the refreshing crab rémoulade. No meal is complete without a sweet denouement, and Boho Marché’s new menus deliver irresistible temptations like the decadent chocolate fondant or the exquisitely crafted St Honoré, adorned with caramel diplomat cream.

His impressive background includes stints at renowned fine-dining establishments such as The Corran Resort & Spa and Gravetye Manor, which boasts a prestigious Michelin Star.
