Served warm, this was a nice way to enjoy the fresh bread. We really enjoyed the creamy smooth butter, spreading it thickly over the bread, delicious.
The Coley had a wonderful crisp skin, being cooked and seasoned well. We loved the Chorizo pieces throughout the dish, adding texture and depth, overall a pleasant plate of food.
|Braised Ox Cheek|
Again thumbs up from us both for this dish. The braised Ox cheek for us was cooked perfectly and fell apart with ease. The celeriac puree was silky smooth and packed a strong earthy flavour, truly delightful.
The large prawns were succulent and moreish. The feta cheese was the perfect match for the tangy harissa sauce. This was probably the dish we had the least hopes about, but it turned out to be one of our favourites, a heavenly plate of food.
Duck is a firm favourite of ours, and we were certainly more than happy with this plate of food. The duck was beautifully cooked, the Thai curry sauce had just the right amount sweetness and spice and was the perfect accompaniment to the duck. We enjoyed the added texture from the crispy rice which was shaped into a block. We both agreed this was easily the standout course of the evening, fantastic.
After reading mix reports about the chips, we were more than happy with what we were served. The chips were crisp on the outside and fluffy and light on the inside, just the way we love them.
|Lemon and Earl Grey Baked Alaska|
With the open kitchen being right next to us, we were lucky enough to see this dessert being prepared. We loved seeing the chef finishing it off with the mini blowtorch just a few feet from us. Lemon and earl grey was a combination we hadn't came across before, but after this dessert, we can now say it's a combination we love. The sorbet within the meringue, with its strong bursts of flavour was delightful.
|Blackcurrant and Chocolate|
For us this was the weaker of the two desserts, but we both still enjoyed it. The chocolate and blackcurrant was pleasant, but needed a bit more of a chocolate punch, as this was lost. We loved the sharp blackcurrant flavours which worked well with the honeycomb ice-cream. The addition of the cornflake crunch added another texture and dimension to the dessert.
