Trinity has been getting a lot of press an TV coverage of late, and as it is relatively local we’d though high time we tried it. Being able to book mid week for the following Saturday didn’t bode well as normally if you can book it at such short notice it isn’t very good.
So with expectations well managed we arrived to a pleasant welcome and promptly taken to our table. With aperitifs came an amuse bouche of smoked cod roe with a crumbly pastry to dip, which was delightful.
We opted for the tasting menu with matching wine and at £68 a head seemed crazy cheap. Butternut quash soup, buttered mushrooms with egg yolk tortellini to start was very tasty although my expectation would have been for a soft egg yolk rather than hard. We swapped the ceviche option for a pan seared scallop, perfectly cooked. Next came sea bass, again very well cooked and very tasty although the orange sauce was a little strong. The highlight of the meal was the main, venison Wellington, tender fillet wrapped in a lovely pastry. Finishing with the mascarpone and vanilla shortbread for pud, light and refreshing.
We also had an extra cheese course at the end which tipped us over the sated/ bloated threshold. The accompanying drinks for the 3 cheeses were a little out of the ordinary, being a cider, bitter and a wine.
Service was very good from start to finish, food arriving promptly and the courses being spaced not too quick nor too slow. I would have said floorless service, but on two occasions we nearly got the adjacent table’s food.
So all trepidations quickly evaporated, in what proved to be a very good all round experience; good service, good food in a convivial environment and at the prices they charge this is a must for a visit or two.
