Facade: Small, cosy, intimate, vilagey, cute.
Decor: Chilled out with squashy, leather furniture in the bar. Muted colour palette, white as white tablecloths, romantic lighting .
Dress Code: It’s a relaxed atmosphere but still posh enough to doll yourself up for. I was in a white cocktail dress and Mr P was in smart shirt and trews.
Snap: I had scallops to start which came with watermelon, apple and pistachio – sounded weird, tasted divine. Mr P had rabbit. Prior to this, we had a celeriac veloute with a vanilla foam which I enjoyed but which Mr P found a hit bland. Mains were halibut with cockles, fennel and caviar (for me) and pork for Mr P – both were delicious and plates went back to the kitchen clean. We shared a cheeseboard for dessert which features seven cheeses going from the mild and gentle to the strong and hearty all with a selection of apple, celery and chutney.
Good For: A treat. It’s the best restaurant I have ever been to and, for the standard of food served, worth every one of your hard-earned pennies.
