We attended on the Friday night on the first official week of opening, the restaurant was quiet but after tasting the food, it became clear that this was not to be for long.
Our starters arrived promptly. I had the pork belly, it arrived crispy and presented in a beautiful salad, dressed in a subtle but flavourful chilli dressing with aged feta and apple. My partner had the goats cheeese salad, which was accompanied by beautifully cooked pink and purple beetroot, creamy goats cheese and beautifully caramelised walnuts. The sweet notes were accompanied wonderfully by the creamy cheese, and earthy beetroot.
For mains, I had the burger - crispy streaky bacon, luscious creamy leeks with smoky caerphilly cheese, and a beautifully seasoned home-made patty, all inside a firm but delicious home-made bun. Accompanied by home made rustic chips and a truffle mayonnaise. My partner had whole lemon sole in a rich browned caper butter sauce, with a tomato and onion concasse all served with rosemary new potatoes. She said it was devine, and it definitely looked the part.
Despite the fact we were both stuffed (VERY generous portions) we managed to make room for dessert. We shared the panacotta and roasted figs. As delicious as you could imagine. The yoghurt panacotta contrasted beautifully with the sweet figs, maybe ever so slightly too set, but definitely did not detract from the flavour.
The service was attentive but not too fussy, and all of the staff were very nice, and chatty. It was a fantastic night in all, price for everything, including coffee, spirits afterwards and a FANTASTIC bottle of wine, Including tip did not exceed £80. Very reasonably priced, and a great night in all. Will definitely be back, sooner rather than later.
Would recommend to anyone after an enjoyable night.
