My husband and I visited Reed earlier this week, as my ancestors are from the area. We spent the afternoon in the village, including the church where we found information regarding the Cabinet. We decided we would go for a drink before returning home to Bedfordshire. What a wonderful surprise! We arrived at the Cabinet and received a warm welcome from the friendly young man behind the bar, with the smell of fresh bread baking, staying to eat was the only option! The menu was brought to us in the bar and when we had finished our drinks we were seated in the lovely restaurant. All I can say is ‘ I will remember this meal forever’, I had the scallops in sweet chilli sauce to start, melt in the mouth food, the most delicious starter I have ever eaten. My husband had crayfish bloody mary which he said was absolutely wonderful. I then had chicken and mushroom pie with mash and red cabbage, just to think of it makes me hungry again. My husband had the cassoulet of pork loin, chirizo, parsley and cannalini beans, again excellent. How I wanted the poached pears and cinnamon ice cream, but that will have to wait for a later date as I was too full to eat another mouthful. We spoke to the chef and he gave us some hints for cooking scallops, he was friendly and charming. All in all, one of the best eating experiences we have ever had. We will be returning and will recommend to all our friends.
Oh, by the way, the wine was delicious too.
