Yeast parfait, salted caramel, malt styrofoam, biskélia aero & pearl barley

After Belgium it was another quick flight up to Manchester and a train and a bus later I was sitting down and enjoying the amazing hospitality at ⭐️ (solid ⭐️⭐️IMO) @angelathetton .
@michaelwignall_ ‘s sublime cooking together with @kaye.turton ‘s seemingly infinite wine knowledge and friendly relaxed service style make for the kind of restaurant that I will always head back to again and again.
They have taken Covid in their stride and adapted the space very well. Sanitizer is there in the small lobby and again at the table you get an ingenious little sanitizer spritzer to continue with throughout the meal. There are discreet Perspex dividers between tables where appropriate and all staff were wearing masks, including Michael (you’d be surprised at the number of restaurants that I’ve been to recently where all the staff are wearing masks but for some reason the chef feels that he or she is exempt) who kept his distance when popping out for a chat. Kaye who I have always found to be extremely engaging when she presents the wines had even written up tasting notes to go along with each wine rather than spending time at the table, and each glass was poured away from the table as well. Thinking about it now, it’s probably the safest I’ve felt in a restaurant since the pandemic began. As I said, the cooking is sublime and you can tell the amount of work Michael and his team put in to perfecting each plate, because they are perfect. If it doesn’t get a second star in the next guide Michelin I would be very surprised. Although, you never know with the GM 🤷🏼‍♂️ Luxurious cottages are available acrosss the road which I stayed in last time I visited and they also provide you with a map of all the local walking you can enjoy.
The perfect place for a weekend break. Very highly recommended & one of my favourite restaurants in the UK.
