Was back again yesterday at this old favourite. I have been here too many times to mention, but this is the first time I have written a review. In my opinion this place is getting better!
The service is always excellent, Christian(owner) and his team are great, always on hand but never in your face. The food is always great, there are always keenly priced specials, but with the main menu being so keenly priced as well I always go á la carte.
Yesterday I had a great braised shoulder of beef with button onions, mushrooms and mash. Something to fill you up on a cold day. The meat was tender but not falling apart, the mash silky smooth and had a ton of herbs running through it, the gravy rich and velvety and packed with red wine and solid stock. It was exactly what I needed.
The restaurant itself has stayed very pretty since it opened, it has not aged and is a great place for drinks after work or a romantic dinner (get one of the booths) – I like it so much I even had my engagement party there!!
I had a glass of Rosé yesterday (suggested by Christian) which would not have been my first choice, but it was great – light, crispy and fruity. it cut through the rich beef and was the perfect partner. Chateau du Galoupet is from provence, and I have not found it anywhere else as yet.
I could go on all day about this restaurant (and generally do), but when you find a place you like that treats you like family I think you should rave about it. Oh and before I go – try the hogs pudding with apple (starter not desert) it is great!!!
