It is worth its two stars, for sure. I found faults, it was not easy.
My pheasant stuffed pasta had lots of truffle and mushroom flavour. The Flame Grilled Mackerel with Smoked Eel, Celtic Mustard and Shiso was amazing.
The venison dish was the star of the show. Living on the edge of two moors, I am no stranger to venison. This was exceptional.
My native lobster with broccoli stem, natural yoghurt
and Indian spices in brown butter was very good. It was not the best lobster I have ever had though. As I have been living by the sea I am probably spoilt. In case you’re wondering, Scotland has the best lobster, then Dorset Blue lobster come a close second. Yes I am spoilt.
Desert was as expected heavenly. My soufflé was perfect. The ice cream in the middle looked good, but melted quickly, it would have been better on the side.
Caramelised Banana Galette with Salted Caramel, Passion Fruit and Peanut Oil Parfait, was superb.
