A destination restaurant in a comfortable town-house hotel close to the old bridge and the river.
The smart conservatory dining room gives just the right balance of comfort and feel for that special occasion.
The kitchen has built on sourcing built up over the years; whilst the menu stoically follows the seasons. Starters such as 'Gaspacho'; 'Isle of Lewis Smoked Salmon with Lemon & Capers' and 'Corn-fed Chicken & Leek Terrine with Pear Chutney & Melba Toast' appeared in an early summer menu - and set the general style.
Mains included 'Grilled Lemon Sole with Runner Beans, Fresh Peas & Sautéed New Potatoes'; 'Roast Breast of Gressingham Duck with Rosti Potatoes, Pak Choi, Baby Carrots & a Red Wine Sauce' and 'Char-grilled Aberdeen Angus Rib-Eye with Onion Rings, hand-cut Chips, Watercress & Béarnaise Sauce'.
Fresh fish figures prominently, as does game in darker months.
If you have room you might be tempted by 'Pear Frangipane Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream'; 'Fig Tart with Earl Grey Ice Cream' or their good selection of farmhouse cheeses.
