Haven't been to Ashfield's since Christmas and was really looking forward to lunch - we were not disappointed. We were welcomed by the front of house team (Anne, David & Shane) and settled down with a drink to peruse the menu plus the specials board, this proved difficult for me as there was so much to choose from. I chose deep frid mushrooms with galic and chilli mayonnaise and my husband had confit of slow cooked duck leg on oriental vegetables in a five spice broth, both were really nice. For the main course I had roast leg of English lamb with Yorkshire pudding, glazed baby onions & roast gravy which was really tender and tasty, my husband had roast loin of pork with chestnut stuffing, pigs in blankets with apple & rhubarb sauce, which he described as "spot on!". For desserts I had ‘Trio of Oranges’: orange panacotta, oranges in brandy & orange shortbread biscuits and my husband had rhubarb & raspberry franjipane tart with raspberry ripple ice cream. We had decided to share our desserts but I didn't get a look-in, so would say that speaks for itself! If I was to be hyper-critical I would say that the Trio of Oranges suggests three deserts rather than panaccotta served on a biscuit with the orange on top. It would be more appropriate to be deconstructed and served on a slate or rectangular plate. However, everything was tasty and the service was excellent: I asked to be given time before ordering desserts and the waitress was more than happy to do this.
A great Sunday lunch in a friendly and welcoming setting!
