We also ate at the White House on a Sunday night. I had the scallop entre and twice cooked pork belly, Hubby had the duck sausage entre and lamb shoulder for main. Our food was great. My pork was crisp for the skin and tender and delectable for the meat with a delectable crispy base. The prawns were absolutely delicious. Best I've had in a long while. I agree with the previous review that I probably had more aioli than I needed, but it wasn't a problem, just an area where a slight saving could be made.
The duck sausage was delicious also and the lamb shoulder very filling and delicious and again that yummy crispness around the edges.
Rosemary potatoes weren't available, but the shoestring fries were provided free of charge as an apology. Can't complain about that. Both the fries and side of broccoli were of generous proportions as was the meal as a whole.
We went for the Summer mango cheese cake with passionfruit jelly. The jelly must have run out because it was actually served with a citrus butter. The dessert was very nice, but I didn't think it warranted the $17.50 price tag. On the other hand the mains were probably less than I would have expected for what you got so it all balanced out. We felt our meal was good value for the price.
Hubby enjoyed a range of local beverages, a couple of locally brewed beers and some pear cider. All were great and we expect restaurants to stock the local products, so our expectations were definitely met on that score.
Our hostess indicated to us that they are currently looking at adopting a more casual approach to Sunday night extend opening to other week nights and do fine dining on Friday and Saturday nights, when there is a greater demand for that. Keep an eye on facebook and twitter for developments.
We would both be happy to dine at The White House and recommend it to friends.
Oh, and re the price TA wants below, all taxes are included in prices in Australia so not possible to give cost pp without tax.
