The starter of Buffalo mozzarella, crushed broad bean, mint & rocket salad, lemon oil was generous with fresh salad leaves, large chunks of tangy high quality mozzarella, moist broad beans and a perfectly suited dressing. I would return just to experience this starter again, but I might have trouble convincing my dining partner to join me – her Grilled mackerel Niçoise salad starter was disappointing, lacking a dressing to pull all the ingredients together.
The dried cherry tomato, pesto & parmesan risotto was large but utterly boring. The dried tomatoes were hard unless mixed for a while with the risotto, and it felt like it was missing a really punchy pesto and perhaps some crunchy toasted pine nuts on top would have improved it. The sausage and mash main course was unremarkable with slightly tough sausages.
