We went to this local restaurant for my husbands birthday. Nicola and the girls were very friendly when we arrived, and we settled down on the couches to have a pre-dinner drink and to peruse the menu. We ordered Avocado Mousse, Seafood Gratin, and were shown to our table just before it was ready. The presentation was superb, and we were not disappointed by the taste either!
For main course we had Fillet of beef, all cooked perfectly despite 3 different requests, and the Guinea Fowl was delicous. Normally we wouldn't have desert but we couldnt resist the cheese platter, the pecan cheesecake and the mille fueille of strawberry with mango and lime. Small requests were accomodated with a big smile and speedily dealt with. Service was perfect, we didnt feel rushed, or ignored even though the restaurant was full.
Topped off by a birthday plate for my husband, beautifully presented, we have already booked to go again, and can only wonder why it has taken us so long to discover a hidden jewel in our own back yard so to speak.
Cannot recommend more highly, than to say, forget the Chewton Glen, go to Lanes!!
