Eat Out in James Bond Style The Times, November 11th 2008

Hotel TerraVina is one of the ‘Five restaurants in England where 007 could find great grub, gadgets and romance his Bond girls’

Daniel Craig’s James Bond is as sophisticated as his predecessors but leaner and meaner. All that video-game style action must make for one hungry special agent. So where would a thoroughly modern 007 eat in England?

One suspects that he’d move discreetly between classy country boltholes serving updated British fare and chic contemporary restaurants with playful, exotic dishes...

'...Finally, Bond’s Aston Martin DBS V12 wouldn’t look out of place on the drive of Terravina, a plush boutique hotel on the edge of the New Forest, in Hampshire, with a focus on good food and wine. The team cooks using mainly English ingredients with a few Californian twists in the hotel restaurant’s open kitchen. On the dinner menu (about £40 per head) are duck breast with sweet potatoes, bass l Grey tea cream. Order a bottle of Bollinger champagne, the current Bond’s preferred fizz, or take a tour of the vaulted cellar with Master of Wine Gerard Basset, one of the world’s top sommeliers. The restaurant’s strict environmental ethos would be sure to rile faux green Bond baddie Dominic Greene.'
