Squaremeal Review of Saveur ?

Tacked onto the side of the Bell Motel, Saveur is a useful drop-in for locals and travellers looking for unchallenging Anglo-French cooking of the old school. The kitchen cares about sourcing and spells out its provenance on the menu – snails from Kent, foie gras from the village of Tusson Charente, rare-breed meats and so on. The 28-day aged beef is reckoned to be ‘seriously exceptional’, but the kitchen also rolls out ample portions of herb-crusted rack of lamb with a mini Irish stew and bordelaise jus, roast poussin with garlicky sautéed potatoes, and a raft of sustainable fish specials. To start, you might fancy moules marinière or wild mushrooms on grilled onion bread with Cashel Blue cheese and grated black truffle, while desserts are in the classic mould of tarte Tatin with homemade ice cream. Handy for the A1(M).

And we are spoilt for choice with Reed, Datchworth, Welwyn and Hitchin all within 20 minutes. We were one of only 2 tables occupied at 845pm on a Friday evening. A total of 6 covers that we could see...
