This was an entirely different affair on this visit celebrating my Birthday with the entire tasting menu for lunch.  Once again the bacon and onion bread was a treat to have (although somehow not as good as the first time experienced – perhaps that is always the way holding so much expectation on second visit) and some of the different dishes experienced were marvellous.  I had a genuine fireworks moment with the simple salad that used sugar and cherry vinegar to accompany the vegetables and creamed goat cheese and will almost go so far as to say was one of the nicest food moments I have ever had.

Other bombshells were the mackerel tartare, the cod with creamed sauce and pork sensation.  Every element of this menu put a huge smile on my face from one end to the other and the icing on the cake was going down to the kitchen afterwards and meeting the Australian head chef showing us the roe deer he had gained from the recent hunt which he had served us and speaking about all his produce.  This was an absolute belter – light, exciting, pitched well, delicious and joyful to have.  I walked away knowing that I would remember this one for many years to come and was a gem to have.  The only downer in general is its somewhat out of the way location so taxis at the ready for here, however once you go, you will not be disappointed for virtually any occasion.
