Wild Honey is an excellent place to dine. I had already been to Arbutus and enjoyed my meal there so was curious to see what this place would offer. We wanted somewhere quite modern but decent bistro-ish food.
We went for Saturday lunch and the place was empty. When we finally left at closing time, there were only 3 other tables occupied. This dented the atmosphere slightly but the service wasnt affected in the least. Cocktails were made perfectly to order and the bread was delicious and warm…sigh! I slumped into my lovely booth seat, excited of what next!
I didnt fancy any of the starters which were the usual fare, but that was because i anticipated being a hog later. For mains, i had braised lamb with aubergines, peppers, feta cheese and pine nuts – a combination which worked really well though potentially sounding a bit strange to my lunchtime companions. I ordered a side of mash which i think was required. Cant do without my carbs! My family had chicken which was labelled as made for two but when it arrived, i think it could have easily been made separately, ie not one big chicken on one plate so i didnt really understand why a min of two could order! Everything worked really well perfectly, and we savoured every mouthful – i actually enjoyed this more than Arbutus as the tastes seemed to just work so well. The chicken came with some sort of cornbread type thing but again worked very well.
For pudding i had the floating islands which was part of the set menu. There was also the choices of cherry clafoutis, cheesecakes etc but all looked delicious. By the way, the set menu itself is limited but the normal menu has a decent choice.
Wild Honey is a place where you go for the food, rather than the atmosphere, although did strike me as a rather romantic place to have a meal in the evening. It's not huge, service was great, and the food was excellent. We had a great time. The bill came to £110 for 2 courses each plus drinks/coffees etc for three people so not cheap but definitely earns it's accolades. I shall be back…
