Finally the date arrives for our grand meal at Victoria and Alberts, we had booked Queen Victoria's room several months in advance which gives you the 10 course meal and what a meal it was!
When we arrived I was in need of a jacket and one of the Hostesses went round the back and came back with a navy blazer which fit first time! so a good omen, we were then taken into the Queen Victoria room and there were only three tables set up in there so a nice intimate setting with very nice decor, we had mentioned that it was recently our anniversary and they handed us a personalised menu with anniversary wishes which was a nice touch, after perusing the menu we decided to go with the matched wines but only a single order, the server then suggested she would give us both a small measure so we could both try all the wines, I do have to say if I had taken an order each I think we would have had to be rolled out, the one portion was plenty and some really nice wines......starting with a lovely unique champagne!
I wont go through all the courses but the food was wonderful and served with plenty of theatre, some constructed at the table and some served straight from the chef! who by the way came out to the table for a little chat! The wait staff were attentive but not obtrusive, the maitre de came round for a chat as well.
Once the main courses were finished a nice and varied cheese board was offered followed by a really excellent sweet! and then the coffee, we had one regular and one decaff which was brewed by the table in a glass contraption that had two glass bowls connected and worked on a vacuum to suck the water over the coffee, I have to say both coffees were some of the best coffee I have ever had, ful bodied and rich without being bitter.
Finally to cap it all they arrived with a tray of hand made chocolates.....by which time you are to full to eat so they package them up for you to take away with you
All in all a great experience and one I would definately recommend and I will definately be doing it again.
