My wife and I had been wanting to eat at The Chesil for some time so we decided to celebrate our 40th and 50th birthdays by going for an early supper. The food was exquisite, tasty yet simple top notch grub. I had Smoked Haddock Chowder, Leek & Potatoes to start (could have licked my bowl clean!) followed by Lamb Rump, Sweet & Sour Garlic, Spinach, Potato Mousseline, Jus Gras, quite simply the best lamb I have ever tasted. Just cooked to perfection 5*!
My wife enjoyed Cured Salmon, Beetroot & Rhubarb, Horseradish Cream to start and Sea Bream, Crab Tortellini, Stockbridge Mushrooms, Crisp Cabbage which was also excellent.
The wine list was extensive and of a good quality. We enjoyed a gorgeous Sancerre and succumbed to a second bottle.
On the downside it lacked a little atmosphere, I think probably because we had an early booking and it may well liven up later on. It is a little cramped and the table for two quite small. The staff we friendly and efficient, if perhaps a little familiar at times which it made me feel that this is a place that welcomes a regular clientele. Would I visit again? Yes definitely but I may revisit some of the other local restaurants before I do and try to get a later booking!
