My partner surprised me with a wonderful meal in your restaurant for Valentines day. The special 3 course meal that was offered and all the lovely extras made for a wonderful romantic evening! The champagne to enjoy with our meal was lovely and the beautiful red rose and the macaroons to take away were lovely touches.
Both my partner and I really enjoyed all of our courses. I loved my entree of asparagus mousse which was so light and refreshing with perfectly balanced flavours. It melted in your mouth. My partner found the duck delicious!
I decided to try the white truffle and mushroom rotollo and I am am so glad I did!! My partner was delighted with his organic chicken breast.. But couldn't resist enjoying a few tastes of mine!!
Desserts were also a treat!! Frozen cherries and yogurt which was much fancier than the name suggests and the Orange and Almond waffle cake that was my choice was perfectly moist and delicious!!
The service was very swift and efficient, excellent considering it was one of their busy nights! Our waitress Jane gave us wonderful service with a smile!!!
The only thing that I think was missing was music!! It would have really enhanced the evening. A classical violinist serenading us with love songs would have been perfect for the romantic occasion.
We asked if it would be possible to have our coffee in the lounge bar, this was no problem and arranged promptly. Unfortunately the atmosphere was not inviting as the room did not have any background music. Not even a cd playing. We did not feel like lingering because of this. It gave us the feeling as if it was closed and we shouldnt be there! It would have been lovely to have stayed and enjoyed listening, to live music while enjoying a glass of wine. Such a shame to have the wonderful piano and no one playing!
The whole dining experience could have been enhanced by having the addition of live music entertainment, like the duo Suave Sounds.
Our experience during our special night was wonderful, this lack of music to add to the ambience was the only thing I feel was lacking. Everything else was perfect!
I will definitely be recommending The Walnut Room to all of our friends!!
Thank you for a wonderful dining experience. I will always remember our special evening enjoyed there.
