SquareMeal Review of Bel & The Dragon Cookham

Philanthropist, heir to the Cadbury chocolate empire and one-time owner of Soho’s Groucho Club, Joel Cadbury expanded his horizons with this mini-chain of upmarket inns scattered around the Thames Valley and the Home Counties. Expect a user-friendly mix of spacious wood-floored drinking spaces and casual dining areas in tune with the original building’s history and heritage. The food is a broadly European mix of standards and more flashy ideas – from beefy cuts on the Josper grill and rotisserie to more elaborate plates of seared Orkney scallops with aubergine caviar and curried cauliflower or rabbit, chorizo and white bean stew, followed by, say, warm chocolate fondant with blackcurrant ice cream. House wine is offered by the magnum and customers merely pay for what they drink, while weekend brunch and children’s menus broaden Bel’s all-round appeal.

A terrific venue less than an hour away from London. The new proprietors of Bel and the Dragon have done an outstanding job with this delightful pub – transforming it into a food and drink haven which you will bemost reluctant to leave once you get there. The front of the pub retains its delightful ancient charms and original character which then spill out into impressive rooms and tempting “beer garden” for al fresco delights. The lighting in the restaurant injects a light and welcoming atmosphere. The service was superb and attentive. The view of the kitchen and the tantalising roast oven and Josper grill adds to the atmosphere. Most important of all … the food … a delightful mix of fantastically priced perfectly created “new gastropub” delights – the salt lamb was succulent and to die for, the lemon sole so fresh and melted away on consumption, the brocolli with an edge of chilli – a welcome variation to the now already common roasted options. Lemon tart : ten out of ten. All in all – a MUST TRY venue!
