This is only the second time I have ever ticked the box that asks "is this one of the best meals you have ever had in a restaurant", that speaks volumes if only to me.
I was up in this part of the country and as we fancied a meal out so I started looking on Trip to see what was around.
This place popped up in the number one spot in Penrith and after reading some of the wonderful complimentary reviews we decided to sample its delights.
It is easy to find and we parked on the road a few yards away from the main entrance.
We walked in and were greeted with a cheery hello and a smile from a lovely lady who we later found out was the owner.
The other lady serving on that night was excellent also, the service was top class at all times.
We decided to have a drink first and I chose a Vodka cocktail from the cocktail menu.
This menu had 6/8 cocktails on it and they were priced at roughly 4/5 pounds each.
Bargain prices in my opinion.
We were given menus and chose our food whilst sitting in the downstairs bar area.
I actually looked around and commented to my OH that I thought it must be a new restaurant as it all looked so fresh and clean.
We did in fact find out that they have been there 9 years.
The restaurant in all areas was so clean and spotless, a credit to the cleaner.
Complimentary bread of two sorts was given to us, I loved the fruit and nut bread.
We were offered more as well, so being greedy we said yes!
I had a prawn and avo salad with a wonderful dressing on it.
It was very tasty and looked good on the plate too.
My main meal was breast of chicken in some sort of sauce that though I now forget what it said it was on the menu, it was just so darn good.
On my main plate I had some very small roasted potatoes that were stacked in a round shape, again they looked good, but tasted better.
The individual (inclusive in the main meal price) serving of vegetables consisted of 5 different ones, all cooked in a unique way and yet again wonderfully tasty and presented so well.
For my dessert I had a wonderful Limoncello thingy that came with.....oh just go and order one yourself.....it will take me too long to say how it came!
It was very very good though.
So that was that, 3 courses of wonderful food, cooked perfectly, presented perfectly, served perfectly.
I can not rate this place highly enough.
We have booked for 4 of us for the next time I am up in this area.
Many thanks to all there, seriously impressed lady here!
