Find this good restaurant in the comfortable Abode Hotel.
The kitchen team maintain the high standard introduced when this was in the domaine of chef Michael Caines.
While changing seasonally, a winter snapshot of the concise à la carte menu brought 'Smoked Ham Shank with Pickled Vegetables, Truffle Mayonnaise & Pommery Mustard'; 'Risotto with Pickled Walnuts, Stilton & Roasted Squash'; 'Scallops with Pancetta, Parsnip Purée & Roasted Parsnips' and 'Red Mullet with Bouillabaisse, Rouille & Gruyere Crouton' amongst the starters.
'Blade of Beef with Celeriac Fondant & Purée, Curly Kale, Chestnut Mushrooms & Jus'; 'Chicken with Broccoli. Pommes Purée, Wild Mushrooms & Truffle'; 'Sea Bass with Cauliflower Purée, Caramelised Cauliflower, Raisins & Cumin' and 'Lobster Ravioli with Shellfish Bisque, Roasted Fennel & Coriander' listed among the mains.
Desserts maintain the high standard, with perhaps 'Vanilla & Pineapple Panna Cotta with Jelly & Caramel'; 'Parsnip Cake with Crisps, Pecans, Caramelised Parsnip Purée & Vanilla' and 'Dark Chocolate Fondant with Salted Caramel & Caramel Ice Cream' among the offerings.
The hotel has a smart Champagne Bar, which makes an excellent meeting place.
