Myself and my freind were lucky enough to get in to one of The Coven's new gourmet nights. I say lucky enough because demand for seats at this compact resteraunt are already becoming hard to come by on these gourmet nights. We were placed on a reserve list and it was only because some one else dropped out (The Fools!) that we were able to attend.
When we came the whole place had a very warm atmosphere with clever lighting and inviting place settings added into a very upmarket bistro atmosphere.
There was a Mezze style starter all in the oriental style, a mixture of cooked and 'raw' food... we were fighting over the dehydrated mushrooms!
All in all there were four full courses, each with at least four options so lots of indecision and scope for revisits! The stand out dishes in a wonderfl night were the Crispy (Not) Duck, The Thai Green Curry and The Birds Nest was a very impressive visual and gastronomic treat too. As for the Sweet selection I can confidently say that they were the best Banana Fritters I have ever had, crispy batter with soft aromatic banana on a bed of indulgent cream!
The night itself as as fun and inviting as The Coven is during the daytimes with conversations actively encouraged across the tables but the best thing about the whole night was the fact that there was no rush with everything taken at the speed of the individual diners.
We have already booked for the Quiz Night which promises even more fun and frolics with The Coven Twist on traditional pub food.... I can't wait!
