We visited Le Talbooth last night for dinner. This was my third visit here in the course of the last ten years; each time it has been nothing less than spectacular. Consistently excellent service, incredible food and a beautiful set of surroundings.
Have to say, we are not hoy polloy whatsoever. Given the prices and the standards of experience offered, you will be surrounded by the very well off, but the atmosphere was chatty as opposed to stuffy and overly formal. We felt comfortable and were made to feel very special. As we are not wine conoisseurs, (yet!), we asked staff to recommend both a white and a red to accompany our chosen starters and main. They took on board the flavours we enjoy and brought us two very appropriate glasses of wine each. Water glasses were topped up and a slightly dirty spoon was replaced before we had even noticed the mark!
The food was exquisite and portion sizes perfect. We ate a full three courses without feeling uncomfortably full. Coffee and chocolates were incredible; so delicate were the chocolates, I can only assume they were handcrafted by fairies. :-D
On leaving, staff saw us out and helped us into our jackets feeling thoroughly spoilt by such a wonderful evening.
I am angling for Milsoms to cater for my wedding. In my mind, there is no other restaurant that comes even close to tgmhis level of perfection in our area. Save up and splurge because it will be worth every penny. :)
