I don’t quite know what has gone amiss in the space of one year, but the most glorious aspect about this place is its location. So naturally not a soul dined indoors whilst the warmest weather prevailed. As we sat at our table I found the clean-looking yet sticky wooden table top slightly off-putting; it craved polish and/or a buff, so at least ice cold glasses wouldn’t stick.
No grumble about staff nor pace of service or presentation. A selection of interesting homemade breads boded well. The menu had been well composed offering dishes such as asparagus with crispy hen’s egg and wild boar salami. Fish featured as choices for both starters and mains, as did pork. Beef, poultry and lamb were also in the mix. Fresh egg pasta with watercress pesto was lacking punch and a good dousing of parmesan might just have managed to transform an otherwise bland starter.
Lamb rump was cooked to order and served with seasonal vegetables, so this main came up to the mark for one of us. Less care seemed to have been applied to a chicken and mushroom pie, an unfortunate feature of which was sinew and gristle (probably constituted about 20% of filling), though could not be faulted for flavour. We may be tempted to revisit but only if the weather were to be as kind, though indoors had been decked out to appeal.
