23 Stone Street, Cranbrook, Kent, TN17 3HE
An excellent restaurant named after the Roman author of possibly the world's oldest cookery book.
The double-shop-fronted, timber-clad, building dates back to the 16th century, and it has a cosy feel - with only six tables - but they are well-spaced and have comfortable high-backed chairs.
To start, expect dishes such as 'Grilled Sea Bream Fillets with Tapenade Toast and Tomato Dressing'; 'Ballotine of Foie Gras (or perhaps Guinea Fowl) with toasted Pain d'epice and pickled Girolles'; or 'Asparagus with Black Truffle dressing'. This might be followed by boneless 'Osso Bucco'; 'Fennel-roasted Monkfish with Lobster vinaigrette'; 'Honey-Roast Quail with Braised Red Cabbage & Truffle Pommes Mousseline' or 'Slow-Roast Shoulder of Pork with Creamed Potatoes, Savoy Cabbage and Caramelised Apples.
Perhaps 'Chocolate Marquise'; 'Passion Fruit Rice Pudding with Hibiscus Ice Cream. Lime Jelly, Mango Salad & Sablé Biscuit' or a 'Iced Hazelnut Mousse with Summer/Winter Fruits to finish. Service is both friendly and excellent. No mobile phones.
