I was lucky enough to be invited to the dry run early this week and my first impressions were positive.
It's difficult to review a restaurant before it's really open and I'm sure the experience will be even better in a few months when the front of house staff and the brigade are more familiar with their surroundings.
The room is beautiful. A little ostentatious for my needs but hotel guests will love it and it certainly feels like a special occasion room. It's also a nice change from the magnolia and grey blandoramas that have become so popular in recent years. The door staff were charming as were the waiting staff (a little hesitant but that's to be expected)! The food was suprisingly simple, the presentation interesting without being fussy and big bistro portions. I really enjoyed my scallop and leek starter and the hot smoked salmon with horseradish sauce and colcannon. I was also pleasantly suprised by the prices.
I had a tour round the kitchens as I wanted to see the chefs table and briefly met Stuart who was very welcoming and friendly. The chefs table (seats 8) is in the heart of their enormous kitchen and would be a fantastic experience for passionate foodies.
