Six of us did the Fine Dining experience on 17th June in a redecorated room with a slight odour of paint. This didn't bother us, and was soon forgotten. We were the only ones present in a room that could accommodate about 30 covers. The three course menu was a set price of £70 each and the wine list ranged from about £18.00 for a bottle of Fleurie up to about £70. I guess more expensive options might be available. The service was friendly and the two men who served us seemed knowledgeable about the food and wine on offer - I thought they were overfriendly and a bit too informal, but others might not share this view. Service was a tad slow, we arrived at 1930 and rose from the table at 2230. We had the usual amuse bouche offering after we had ordered, and this was a horseradish cream topped with a little red mousse in the form of a small flower. Not sure what that tasted of. Starters included pigeon breast, rabbit and fishy things, which were well presented. Each dish was complicated - that is to say, whilst rabbit was the central element, there were lots of tiny accompaniments on the plate as well. The same could be said of the main courses - lots of little bits on the plate. My Belly of Pork came with a chunk of lobster, and they did not taste as if they were soul mates. The pork was excellent, in spite of the crustacean. The best part of the meal was the desserts, although I now forget what they were! Had the service been quicker, we might have lingered over a coffee and cognac, but we felt it was a bit late. Total bill was £600 but we were light on the wine front (just three bottles) and no cognac. Have a good night out, and it will cost you £130 per head, if you can stay awake until late into the night.
