Find this good restaurant in the comfortable 'Hard Days Days Night' Hotel, itself set in the Grade II listed Central Buildings, built in the mid 1880's.
The restaurant is named after Sir Peter Blake who designed the cover of the group's Sergeant Pepper album and visually resembles an upmarket Parisian brasserie, but bedecked in Beatles photographs.
A fairly concise menu, following the seasons, offers about eight choices at each stage and the cooking standard has received praise from all quarters. An early Spring snapshot brought 'Seared West Coast Scallops with Watercress Purée, Chorizo & Pea Shoots'; 'Maple-Syrup-Braised Pork Belly with Apple Purée, Sticky Walnuts & Crackling'; 'Wild Mushroom Jelly with Glazed Pineapple, Parmesan Gnocchi & Black Truffle' and 'Pressed Terrine of Maize Fed Chicken & Foie Gras, with Pancetta & Banana Sorbet' among the starters.
'Seared Fillet of Seabass with Saffron Linguini & Spiced Seafood Broth'; 'Roast Breast of Whitchurch Chicken with Lobster Mousse, Crab & Potato Salad with Sorrel Beurre Blanc'; 'Roasted Rack of Lamb with Braised Lamb & Potato Tian, Buttered Baby Vegetables & Star Anise Jus' and 'Filo Parcel of Pearl Barley & Spring Vegetables, Stilton & Red Wine Butter' listed among the mains.
Desserts don't disappoint, with perhaps 'Double Baked Chocolate Soufflé with Baoleys Iced Parfait'; ' Upside Down Toffee Apple Cake with Banana & Butterscotch Ice Cream' and 'Pineapple Cheesecake with Coconut Milk Sorbet' there to tempt you.
