Chouette (La)

Westlington Green, Dinton, Buckinghamshire, HP17 8UW
Although we list this as a French restaurant, so it's not inadvertently-missed in our search system, this restaurant - in a converted pub - is Belgian to the core!

The relaxing dining room retains many of the buildings 16th century features, including an inglenook fireplace; plus splendid wild-life photographs.

Chef/proprietor Frederic Desmette bases his dishes squarely in the classical camp, and the cooking standard is high.

Expect the likes of 'Salad of Wild Pigeon Breast'; 'Scottish Scallops with a Chicory Sauce'; Fillet of Brill in a Sauce of Belgian Beer' and 'Aberdeen Angus Fillet with Bearnaise Sauce'.

Popular desserts include 'Glazed Fruits with a Sabayon Sauce'; 'Dame Blanche' (vanilla ice cream with Belgian chocolate sauce) - or a 'surprise' dessert, produced by the mischievous Monsieur Desmette.
