Now as a 2 Michelin starred venue for this visit, the expectation was even greater.  This was returned in the guise of a spectacular meal of an even greater number of courses.  The truth be known however, I actually preferred the flavour of the dishes on my visit when it was a one star and now that it has gained two Michelin stars, my second visit showed an almost marathon of a tasting menu with simply superb inventiveness (particular highlight being the crystallised candy pops that accompanied the main meat course) but glad to have experienced it rather than an insatiable desire to get back there soon.

Simon Rogan’s dishes are utterly fresh and stylish without being too over the top and the sourcing of all local ingredients from the immediate lands give his cooking a very personal touch.  The food will wow almost any diner and it should definitely be on every foodie’s to do list.  Perfect for a nice lunch and a special occasion, but with the length of the menus and price tags associated, it’s difficult to view as a place to just drop in – diners should be under no illusion that booking as well as planning the stomach and timetable well in advance is required for a visit here.
