I’ve been to a few restaurant in my time so it is fairly difficult to wow me any more as I’ve pretty much seen it done it and eaten it. So Wild Honey proved to be a real treat
A fairly unassuming façade led into a fairly bijou restaurant, mixing old fashioned wood panelling with modern paintings hung on the wall made for a very convivial atmosphere. We were seated in a nice booth for the four of us which made for a cosy setting.
The food too was well deserving of it’s Michelin star, our starters included smoked eel; smoky and meaty tasted with a subtle piquant after taste and razor clams in garlic and parsley; very good flavours but for me a tiny bit chewy.
Main courses, came in just as good, I had Icelandic cod; a very succulent and moist chunk of cod with crispy boneless chicken wings and we also had the aged rib of beef; which was very tasty and tender.
Cheeses course to follow, £29.25 for a selection of 9 (we just had one of each cheeses they had!), the deserts Paris Brests, bagel shaped choux pastries filled with praline cream. Coffee and handmade petit fours finished us off.
The bill I thought fairly reasonable at just under £400 for four people of which £150 was on drinks.
The food and ambience was very good and tempting for a soon return visit, the fly in the ointment though is that the service let the whole experience down. In a restaurant of this type I don’t expect the who is having chicken conversation when the food arrives, and steak knives were given to those of us having fish and not the steak eaters, we had to ask for a bottle of water, and we had to visit the cheese board rather than vice versa. All minor issues though that could and should be easily ironed out; especially if they want to keep that star.
That said Wild Honey is highly recommended for a visit.
