What made this restaurant so good was that we were staying in the hotel and decided to eat in. The shame is that had we stayed elsewhere, we would have missed a wonderful culinary experience!
The dining room in not the most inspiring in terms of outlook and decor but when it comes to food the restaurant excels. There was a delicious minced rabbit wrapped in leaves appetiser followed by very different starters, different because of the combination of flavours. I'm not sure about the foie gras with ginger bread was the right combination but the strawberry and rhubarb soup was delicious as was the celery and leek soup!
The beef, venison and trout main courses were all beautifully prepared and presented, the meats wonderfully tender and presented rare, the fish lightly cooked but firm. The ice creams were beautiful though I found the lime cake pastry a little stodgy.
There was a reasonable wine list and waters available and salt and pepper were produced on request. If I have a complaint it would be that the single member of staff had to look after the bar, reception (and arrivals) as well as us with the result that our mains were delayed and arrived cold. It was also rather a solitary dining experience on both occasions we ate there as the were few other guests but we can only recommend that you eat here as it was fantastic!
