My second visit to L’Autre Pied was much better and this time it was very good to see an amuse bouche (a nice artichoke mousse) and the parmesan cheese bread was extremely good.  The braised deer was lovely as was the pig and subsequent rhubarb.  The white chocloate and grand marnier petits fours were splendid and rounded off a very good set menu lunch.  All in, with tea and service charge came to £37 which could have been less, had I opted not for the tea but still ticks the good value for money as it technically meant five diferent courses at Michelin starred level.  Fuller notes on the food is at the below expansion button.

What the restaurant loses points for, in my overall esteem however, is the fact there was a hair in my tea which was clearly visible through the lemon clarity of the lemon tea and the hospitality.  Dealing with each one in turn, the latter can happen and it was replaced but I was surprised that a little something was not taken off the bill or more petits fors were given for example as a gesture – sending anything back is a big negative for a Michelin starred reestaruant so it was a bad dissapointment that this did not register more with them.

The second negative was the dissinterested nature of the front of house Maitre d’ on greeting and pleasanties after the meal – no checking of whether the meal was enjoyed or even eye contact and was a very poor effort on the part of the front of house here.  This was a shame as the waiter had done a very good job of looking after me throughout the meal.

Overall, the food was a very good, but the hospitality requires a lot of attention.  A very reasonable venue if you are willing to deal with some care-free handling and do not require an atmosphere.
