The reviews on trip advisor have given Petrus No.1 status so we decided to give it a try for our company christmas trip.
The welcome was warm and we were seated in no time at all.
We went for the 5 course taster menu with wine.
Pre dinner Amuse bouche was delicate but delightful and lingered on the tongue for more than a while.
1st course was Landes foie gras with apple jelly, smoked duck, hazelnut and blackberry crumble.
The balance of the foie gras with the apple was just delightful and the apple skin was superb
2nd course was Lobster and salmon ravioli with creamed leeks, Champagne and chive velouté.
As someone who doesn'tlike lobster all that much as I find it very overpowering the balance of the lobster with the volute was perfection add that to the al dente ravioli and this dish was a complete surprise. I loved it.
Main I went for Roasted Suffolk pork fillet with crispy suckling pig belly, apple and Madeira jus.
The pork was cooked to perfection and really delicious. However the onion accompaniment was not nice tomy pallate and I felt took away the flavour of the delicious pork.
Cheeses were reallygood and the selection was just right. I did not enjoy the apple and blackberry chutney which was served with it.
The Chocolate sphere with milk ice cream and honeycomb for desert was very nice but my guests found it too sweet and would've prefered fruit.
The service was sensational and we were invited down to the kitchen to meet the chief and meet the kitchen staff who were all delightful to us. This really was a nice touch.
The bill was slightly over £500 but was terrific.
Petrus ticks al the boxes and is wrth a visit.
