Things have definitely improved since 2009 when the last review of this restaurant appeared. Firstly, you cant help but be impressed when you arrive at this little oasis just off the M3; an aperitif in the gardens overlooking expanses of trees on a warm evening is the ideal start to the evening.
Then into the restaurant which could lose the flocking on the wall but apart from that, it is a cosy, welcoming, elegant restaurant. We opted for the tasting menu and apart from the sweetbreads, we left the rest of it intact. Of the 11 dishes you get including the amuse bouche, only the two cold savoury dishes, well, left us cold. The rest were simply sublime including the creatively presented cheese dish and the 3 different desserts (one made with pea shoots of all things!). All presented like miniature works of art and infused with a decadence of flavours. The sommelier couldnt have recommended a more perfect wine to complement it: a simple and delicious pinot noir. The service was lovely too, from the hostess seating you right through. My only gripe is that I dont know when it became acceptable to charge £10 for a gin and tonic, that is the only thing that left a bad taste in my mouth.
