A good restaurant housed in what was a 16th century chapel and schoolroom. It's run by a team who have experience at the highest level, and this shows in the standards of both food and service as both are taken seriously.
As is usual for restaurants of this standard, the menu follows the seasons, but a snapshot would bring 'Chicken and Apricot Terrine with Apple & Walnut Dressing and Toasted Sourdough'; 'Veal Sweetbreads, Red Onion Marmalade, Potato Savings, Jus' and 'Ravioli filled with Prawn Mousse, Roasted Prawn & Crab, Sweetcorn Purée, Mange Tout and a Lemon Grass Velouté' among the staters.
Perhaps 'Scottish Halibut, Tomato & Olive Crushed Potatoes, Bouillabaisse Sauce'; 'Calf's Liver, Pomme Purée, Bacon, Red Onion Gravy'; 'Rump of Lamb with Fondant Potato, Ratatouille & Rosemary Jus' and 'Five Spice Pork Belly with Spinach, Aubergine Caviar, Pomme Purée & Braised Red Onions' among the mains.
Finish with a delicious dessert such as 'Valrhona Chocolate Tart, Passion Fruit Syrup, Passion Fruit Sorbet'; 'Treacle Tart, Clotted Cream Ice Cream & Caramel Sauce' or 'Pecan Pie with Banana & Baileys Ice Cream, Hazelnut Crisp'.
