Reasons for trip

This was a pre-booked special of 3 courses plus a glass of wine for £25 each – a great deal through bookatable.com (they actually only charged us £23 each at the restaurant plus £19 for the extra carafe of wine).

We both chose the hot smoked salmon salad to start, a great bowl with an excellent dressing, not too overpowering or oily. This went perfectly with the complimentary glass of French white wine, very similar to a Pinot Grigio, and the very rustic bread roll and butter.

Although the main courses were not huge, it was plenty after this starter especially as a mid-afternoon extravagance! Sea bream was well cooked, moist, and served on a mixed tomato and vegetable round, the only minor quibble that it was not cooked skin down so that wasn’t crunchy. My Confit Duck was full of flavour, again very well cooked and presented with pui lentils – these are not my favourite but were the tastiest ones I have had.

We are always struggling by dessert, but managed the pistachio and the salted caramel ice creams which you could order or choose for yourself from the ice cream bar upstairs – a very nice touch. As a leisurely meal, we did of course indulge in a small carafe of white wine – not the same as the glass, more like a Chardonnay than a Pinot, but very smooth alongside the different meal choices. Altogether, this was a great meal and very good value. We would certainly go there again, and pre-book if possible, particularly as they serve all day rather than cut-off times for lunch and dinner.
