The outside of The Bon doesn't give much away,all a bit plain really but looks can be deceiving.Inside it's bigger than it looks and is nicely decorated and has plenty of seating and a small bar.
We had booked a table for two in the restaurant but on arrival we asked if we could eat outside because it was such a nice evening....no problem at all. Our waitress was called Kat and was attentive and affable throughout the evening,even though we were the only people eating outside.
We ordered a starter from the specials board and one from the menu.My companion had tiger prawns and I had the devilled mackerel and in-between times an amuse bouche arrived to whet our appetites...delicious...not pie and peas...more like ham hock and pea puree.
The starters arrived and were very good,the mackerel was outstanding...over too quickly.
The mains were delivered after an appropriate amount of time,not too soon,not too late.
I had ordered the assiette of Yorkshire beef and it was cooked to perfection,quality,absolutely quality,tender and tasty.My companion had the fillet of plaice with oak roast salmon,again very tasty.The accompanying vegetables were perfect for the meal and on Kat's recommendation we had some duck fat chips as well which nicely augmented both meals.
Having finished the mains we were offered dessert but declined due to the quantity of the previous two courses.
We sat and finished our drinks and paid the bill which came to £91,including three glasses of wine and two pints of Peroni.
Conclusions.....very good food,very good service and prices edging towards expensive.............
But....considering what a good evening we had I suppose the price was irrelevant.
We will be returning.
