Find this excellent restaurant, in a quiet cul-de-sac, in the hotel of the same name. The dining room is airy and contemporary, the walls adorned with works of modern art.
Expect the likes of 'Rabbit Terrine with Hazelnut Dressing'; 'Proper Prawn Cocktail'; 'Fresh Crab Salad with Pink Grapefruit and Pea Shoots' or 'Jerusalem Artichoke Soup with a Truffle Sabayon' to begin.
Maybe 'Gressingham Duck Breast with Braised Red Cabbage, Celeriac Purée and Chanterelles'; 'Chicken, Black Truffle and Foie Gras Risotto' or 'Deep-Fried Haddock, home-made Chips and Tartare Sauce' to follow.
Vegetarians have their own menu.
Desserts are accomplished with maybe 'Mandarin Soufflé with Chocolate Ice Cream'; 'Chilled Vanilla Rice Pudding with Fresh Berries and Raspberry Sorbet' or 'Lemon Gras Crème Brulée with Bitter Chocolate Sorbet' to round off your meal.
Service is both professional and friendly.
