I have wanted to dine here for quite a long time as had heard and read favourable comments about Yalbury. Finally managed to dine here yesterday evening -hooray!! I have to say that we had the best meal out in a long time. I ordered the scallops for starter and they tasted sublime. It was also refreshing to have whole scallops rather than bitty segments offered by some other establishments. Duck to follow, equally delicious and rhubarb cheesecake with a perfect balance of tart & sweet.
I think what also makes an impression is that you feel that you are getting value for money as our hosts brought out dainty canapes; cheese course (which we actually declined as we were so full)..& handmade chocolate thingies (technical term of course) all included in the fixed price menu. We've visited pubs in the not too distant past where we've spent the same amount but felt slightly cheated..We don't get out much due young children & finances but would definitely recommend Yalbury (in fact have already spread the word at my son's school this morning).
I am so excited by this place I cant wait to go back! (have my eye on their sunday lunch next...).
Thanks to all the staff for a lovely evening.More
