My friend and I chose this restaurant as a treaty place to eat after a days hiking around Derwent water. We went for the four course menu which we both found absolutely delicious. Canapés were served to us in the lounge whilst we browsed the menu, and then we moved into the dining room where, to our amusement, normal voices were hushed and we had to adopt a half whisper! My starter was fresh, light, flavoursome and balanced: crab meat mixed with a celeriac slaw, wrapped with smoked salmon and a grapefruit and microherb garnish. Sorbets to cleanse the palette were next-probably slightly too big a portion for their function but very tasty. I had the salmon with goats cheese, Mediterranean vegetables and couscous. Beautifully cooked with carefully balanced flavours; quite a big portion but I ate it all! Finally the dessert was a delight for both the eyes and taste buds-raspberry soufflé with apple sorbet and a pastry spoon! It was delicious!! Service was attentive and very friendly. We went through to the lounge to finish our wine and our espresso was brought to us. We were left to relax and play a bit of trivial pursuit and then when we realised we couldn't finish our wine our waiter kindly gave us a bottle top to take it home. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and well worth the money. Highly recommended.
