Find this good small hotel/restaurant in an attractive 16th century building, full of exposed beams, oak panels and a romantic atmosphere. The food on offer is traditionally French in style, but with a few modern twists. Dishes are described in French, but full translations are given.
Food follows the seasons, but starters such as Smoked Haddock and Asparagus Open Ravioli with Asparagus Sauce; Cornfed Breast of Chicken with Broad Beans and Calvados Butter Sauce and Crab and Avocado Salad with a Lemon Dressing set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by Sirloin Steak with Caramelised Onion, Buttered Spinach and Red Wine Sauce; Roast Loin of Lamb with a Tomato Fondue, Fondant Potatoes and a Black Olive Sauce or Fillets of Lemon Sole Poached with Saffron and Coriander, on a bed of Pan-Fried Pepper.
Finish with Treacle Tart Flavoured with Lemon and English Custard; Raspberry Mousse with Fresh Raspberry Jelly, Clotted Cream Ice Cream and Raspberry Coulis or their selection of French cheeses with a Warm Welsh Rabbit.
After your meal you can enjoy finishing your drinks or coffee in their comfortable sitting room complete with open fire or in summer on a pleasant terrace.
