We went to Marianne for lunch and thought it extremely good. However I will start on the few negatives as I want to end on a high. We chose the lunch tasting menu which was good but we were surprised as I felt it was a little imbalanced as no meat course was offered. We were told we could change to something from the expensive deluxe menu and substituted the fish for the meat the Muntjac. However this carried a supplement of £15. That wasn’t the issue but the portion served was ridiculous for the money - I could only describe the portion as 4 shavings of deer, absolutely minute albeit delicious. The wines are also fairly expensive. However now onto the main review. The food served was delicious, the service especially by Barratt was amazing, attentive but unobtrusive. The restaurant is cute with 6 small tables and is lovely and intimate. The kitchen ( which we went into) was small with a fair few chefs but it was so clean and they worked meticulously. Marianne was not there. Everything served was tasty but the outstanding dish for me was the soufflé which was fantastic. I would definitely recommend a visit but please offer a better portion of meat.
