It was clear that everything on the plate had good purpose to be there. Steve Drake managed to make the most of the flavour of every ingredient that graced the plate of each course.
Great execution in all from well balanced canapé, to a layered amuse bouche (cold pea veloute with a complementary citrus fruit layer, which I think contained satisfyingly salty stock from the ham hock component of a pork main course), to perfectly cooked scallops matched with cep and chicken wing plus chutney, followed by a satisfying belly pork dish with squid. My partner’s venison main course tasted divine (two heavenly mouthfuls were forfeited for my benefit). Bread could not be overlooked and incidentally proved to be an accurate indicator of the standard to follow.
A comprehensive wine list and attentive service added to an enjoyable evening mid week Dec 08.
