Already knowing how good Brett Graham’s kitchen skills are, we were unsure of this coupling with the disfavoured (for us ) Mike Robinson of Pot Kiln where our meal was quite below par. So after a few attempts to book a table (demand always a good sign) we were about to find out whose influence was the stronger.
What we ate and drank :
Rabbit & Prune Faggot – Satisfyingly flavourful
Venison Scotch Egg – “Pie hot” with runny yolk
Sea Bream & shrimps, roasted tomatoes, long slivers of runner bean & saffron potatoes – Excellent combination and great textures Roast venison, mushrooms & remoulade – Divine flavours and meltingly tender
Sticky Toffee Dessert of date ice cream & brown bread wafers & sticky toffee – Purrfect End
New World Pinot Noir – good quality and reasonably priced
Reading between the lines, it appeared that Harwood could have been at risk of becoming a victim of its own success if the neg-reviews are accurate, and if that was the case, then it has dramatically pulled things back. We liked everything about this place including the service – the subject of most complaints. The Antipodean touch has triumphed again and maybe we should have been comforted at the thought that a Graham-mentored man was at the helm. However, perhaps Mr Robinson is the one who should be given credit for including so much wonderful game on the menu.
