Squaremeal Review of The Lord Clyde Bollington ?

South African-born Ernst Van Zyl and his team have transformed The Lord Clyde into a “gastronomic destination” – a “true gem” noted for its “seriously good (and clever) food”, savvy drinks and “lovely” service. Snuggled away in the well-manicured Cheshire countryside, this tranquil, neatened-up boozer still finds room at the bar for thirsty locals, although Van Zyl’s inspired cooking is the real draw. The food shows serious gastronomic ambition, with “bold, creative and memorable flavours” shining through in, say, starters of pig’s head and rhubarb with egg yolk and golden raisins or cod cheek and gooseberries with kohlrabi, pancetta and dashi. After that, well-chosen produce receives fiddly high-end treatment, as in hogget and broccoli with sweetbreads, Grelot onions and Yukon Gold potato or Danebridge trout and cauliflower with cucumber, grapes and Jersey royals. To conclude, we like the sound of the peach and hay pannacotta with black treacle and white chocolate – another example of “art on a plate”. A team of “polite, knowledgeable staff” attend to every detail, and there’s a sharp terroir-led wine list too – “it’s everything you want (and more besides)”, concludes one fan.
