Taking advantage of their current 3-courses and a glass of Prosecco for £25 offer, a girlfriend and I met up for one of our all too rare catch ups in the very elegant enclave of the Royal Exchange. Whilst I've spent many a time in the ground floor bar, this was my first “upstairs” experience and if last night was anything to go by, it certainly will not be my last. We were greeted warmly and politely and then shown to a perimeter table with a fab view of the aforementioned bar. The set menu for this offer provides three choices for each course and even that caused a decision-making challenge; eventually my friend went for the smoked mackerel, I opted for the ham hock and pea salad and we both chose the fillet of hake with mussels, creamed potato and spinach as main course. All dishes were beautifully presented, perfectly seasoned and resulted in very empty plates being returned by both of us. Dessert was another difficult choice and I will admit to a touch of plate envy at my friend's Madagascan chocolate and poached pear ensemble. Whilst my strawberries with cheesecake ice-cream rounded off my meal nicely, there was something very indulgent about her plate. She did suggest that I have a taste, but it disappeared at such a rate of knots, I didn't get a chance – ah well, maybe next time!
