A very pleasant visit on this occasion whilst it had a brief spell holding a Michelin star. I’m not sure why it as lost it’s star as the menu I had was perfectly acceptable and comfortably in the middle echelon of 1 Michelin starred restaurants and for me personally, it was a lovely set menu at a reasonable cost and even more lovely to see steak and béarnaise sauce on the set menu! The food was highly satisfying and probably the highlight was the duck egg starter – a lovely, rich feel to the dish naturally, with the duck egg yolk which went very well with the accompanying mushroom jus, crispy base and spinach. Although the interior was a little wide, it is certainly homely and stylish at the same time. A very nice option if you are in the area in need of somewhere and certainly better quality food than say, The Bluebird up the road which is mainly popular because of the design of the establishment than anything else.
