Having done the same old thing for New Years Eve for the last decade we decided to return to The Pilgrims at Lovington having spent a night there in 2010.
Once again Sally and Jules succeeded in making our one night stay one to remember.
The food was superb, the service exemplary and the accommodation as before did not disappoint.
Jules talent in the kitchen has to be experienced. His enthusiasm for food shines through in the dishes that are served.
We had Pilgrims on Horseback (Scallops on blackpudding) and tempura prawns to start, then we both went for the fillet steak for our mains. There really is nothing negative I can say about the food at all. I went for a 'Little pot of chocolate with stem ginger' for desert which really was a taste sensation, whilst my better half decided on a selection of local cheeses.
Having jokingly suggested to Jules that she would like her breakfast in tempura batter as it was that good, Jules presented her with a tempura poached egg at breakfast which was a lovely touch, and also delicious !! This is the sort of personal service you can expect if you visit The Pilgrims at Lovington.
Will we return ? Without doubt.
A big THANKYOU to Sally and Jules for making this New Year one we will remember.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Pilgrims is a 4 star Restaurant with Rooms and holds 2 AA Rosettes. It's as relaxed as a country pub but the food is better than many a city restaurant - not least because all the ingredients come from 'just over the brow of the hill.' And the rooms are simply stunning, Egyptian cotton, king size beds, roll top baths and walk-in showers. The Pilgrims - the best of Somerset on a plate. ... more less
