Dinner for four in Isla's restaurant on Saturday night was simply excellent. Robert Thompson's menu was very interesting and contained numerous different and unusual food combinations, making choices difficult, not wanting to miss anything. After the amuse-bouche and home made breads and butters, and a small pre-starter, our starters arrived - all beautifully presented and explained by Joe, the young but skilled maître who got the balance between service and friendliness just right. We had a scallop dish, a rabbit selection, and a carpaccio of tuna - all really good. Our mains were three orders of Old Spot pork belly, served with lobster and lobster bisque, and one order of line-caught sea bass. Lots of treats on the plates, and tasted even better than they looked! Deserts were again a difficult choice as they all sounded wonderful. After a "pre-desert", they were, and one of our group had the cheese selection which was again well described. Our cocktails and wines brought the total cost to just under £400 before service. Expensive perhaps for the island, but so good. Diane Thompson, the new owner, was also on hand, making sure everyone in the simple but beautifully elegant dining room was happy and being well looked after. Thompson and Thompson - a winning combination. I suspect it will not be long before a new Star is awarded, and The George becomes a gourmet destination - and even better for us, it is just down the road!
