Having posted a review of this restaurant in January this year my wife and I returned to Malvern for an overnight stay and to attend the Malvern Theatre and having regard to our previous visit headed without hesitation for this little gem. During our stay at Malvern we eat twice at The Fig Tree one was for a pretheatre supper/dinner and again the following day for lunch before commecing our journey back to Devon. Our pre theatre meal comprised of a Veal chop (my wife) whilst I had a superb Pork chop, both dishes were served with an excellent choice of fresh vegetables accompanied by a bottle of Pinot Grigio Rose wine, the food was cooked to perfection by the duo in the kitchen led my Manou Kabirizadeh, no doubt this accounts for the Mediterranean influence referred to in other reports, and his French assistant chef Tom Dos Santos. My wife said that her meal was one of the best meals out that she had for a long time, my own meal was equally well received - total cost £50:45 without service. Whilst cheaper options were available we both opted towards the more expensive dishes as we were rather hungry after our journey. It is a varied menue designed to suit all pockets and culinary tastes. Returning the following day for lunch my opted for the special seafood risotto costing £8:75 and I had a delicious portion of cod and french fries priced at £9:95 drinks and pastries with Mocka and Americano coffee brought the total bill to £31:20 once again the duo behind the scenes excelled and presented two superb plates of food. Front of house is in the capable hands of a young lady called Christine Hale who ensures that all reasonable expectations are surpassed. It is good to note that this establishment has not deteriorated since my last visit to Malvern and I will not hesitate in returning again, truly an unpretentious establishment that punches above its weight. Well worth a visit.
