Robert Thompson at the Hambrough

Hambrough Road, Ventnor, Ventnor, Isle of Wight, PO38 1SQ
Find this excellent restaurant in a smart, refurbished Victorian villa (now a boutique hotel), set high above the sea.

The kitchen offers a short seasonal menu, based on local produce. An autumn snapshot brought 'Terrine of Lightly Smoked Eel, Foie Gras, Pork Belly & Granny Smith Apple Toasted Brioche'; 'Salad of Fruits de Mer with Pink Grapefruit, Fennel & Red Gem Lettuce' and 'Cannelloni of Wood Pigeon with Quails Eggs in Crisp Baguette, Jerusalem Artichoke & Black Truffle Sauce' among the starters.

'Pan-Roasted Halibut, Larded with Smoked Salmon, Mushroom Pappadelle, Sautéed Girolles & Gem Lettuce Sauce'; 'Cannon of Dunsbury Lamb with a Pressing of Braised Shoulder, Carrot & Ratte Potato and Lamb Jus'; 'Assiette of Suckling Pig with Boudin Noir, Quince Purée, Pommes Dauphinoise & Cider Jus' and 'Roasted Partridge with Braised Pearl Barley, Savoy Cabbage Purée, Celeriac & Chantenay Carrots' listed among the mains.

Desserts, such as 'Gateaux of Valrhona Chocolate with Banana Bread, Chocolate Brownie & Banana Ice Cream'; 'Baked Tart of Figs & Almond Fangipane with Toasted Fennel Seed Ice Cream and Confit Orange' and 'Tart Tatin of Peach with Vanilla Ice Cream' maintain the high standard.
