The reception was warm and welcoming, the fireside wait pleasant, the sommelier chose a chablis of a reasonable cost and the food . . . well, it was exceptional. A winter minestrone that was rich, warming and surprisingly elegant, the rabbit wellington a stunner: tender rabbit, wrapped in a super-fine, super-crispy light pastry, mushroom ‘pate’ elegantly presented on the side, rich jus and a melting garlic bulb (I thought it was a chestnut but soon realised my mistake).
The daily set menu is exceptional value for this level of cooking. The dining room is elegantly dove grey and unthreatening.
Will most definitely be back.
