I ended up at Lucknam park after being whisked away for a surprise weekend. And i can honestly say that it is a fantastic place to spend a weekend or 24 hours. There is so much to fill your time with. But this post is a restaurant review of the Michelin Star restaurant within the house at Lucknam Park so i shall get started,
We (two of us) sat down at 21:30 for dinner at the restaurant. First impressions were positive, the dining room is divided into two, a main bigger room and a small room. We were seated in the larger room which would have been my preference. The restaurant offers spacious dining with no two tables being near each other, one of my favourite things when dining.
Our table was at the back near the wall and was neat;ly layed out. Upon being seated we were informed of the specials which immiedetly grabbed the attention of my partner who put his order in for that which was the beef with truffle jus.
The menu offers a gourmand menu at about £90 and then a choice of either 2 or 3 courses at £70 or £80 (i think!) We were feeling not so hungry (being so late) so opted for a starter to share, a main course each and a dessert to share. For the starter we chose the scallops, my partner chose the beef special as a main and i opted for the venison. We made our choices and we were left to mull over the vast wine menu. Most of the wines started at at least £60. The somelier's assistant (!) came over and offered some suggestions but we stuck to our guns and went for the Pomerol which was on the somelier recommendation list. So glad we did as it was one of the nicest red wines i have had in a very long time. Absolutely delicious.
The starter of scallops came with 3 scallops and was utterly devine. The mains arrived in good time after and every mouthful of both our dishes was savoured and met with 'mmm's. Both dishes were perfectly cooked and the pureed vegetables and jus' complimented each meat ideally.
For dessert we glanced over the menu, and feeling pretty full we decided to share. The waiter recommended the babanana plate and due to his wonderful pitch we were sold. The somelier this time also offeed a recommendation of some sparkling english dessert wine. Thank goodness we listened as it was light, fruity and delicious. The highlight of the meal however was the dessert. It was incredible. By far the best dessert i have sampled. It consited of minature banana influenced desserts, a banana canalloni, moist and tasty banana cake, some salted caramel ice cream, banana popcorn and some toffee sauce. Incredible.
I would have to say that my meal at Lucknam Park was one of the best i have had, every dish was full of flavour and beautifully presented. Would definitely recommend for special occasions.
