Square Meal Review of The Brasserie at George Hotel, Yarmouth
Combine an enviable location directly across the water from Lymington’s marina with some serious culinary muscle in the kitchen and you have one of the best foodie prospects on the Isle of Wight.
The George’s ambitious young chef has a liking for local ingredients and handles them with plenty of flair – sea bass caught off the wooden pier might appear as a tartare with golden beetroot,
shiso and lime. Other dishes on the dinner menu might include confit chicken terrine with parsnip and cauliflower piccalilli or Dunsbury lamb rump with confit shoulder, broccoli and broad beans,
while lunch might bring pea, asparagus and mint risotto with pea shoots and shaved parmesan. Puds are good, too – perhaps cherry pannacotta with macerated summer berries or a classy orange and
chocolate mousse accompanied by an orange sorbet.
