My parents, my girlfriend and myself went here on a monday evening on the last day of my parent's trip and I must say that this restaurant was the perfect way to spend the last evening with them, simply perfect. I was trying very hard to fault this place but it was absolutely impossible. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted very nicely and escorted to the lounge area where we ordered a drink, while we looked the menu for dinner. We got free olives and salted Almonds which was a nice way to start the evening...
When the table was ready, they nicely told us that when we were ready we could head through. I never once this evening felt in any way rushed, everything happened at a great, relaxed pace.
When we sat down and ordered, we got a bottle of the most delicious white wine, the NZ Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2007.. Oh my lord, what a wine! I have now ordered some from the internet to save for a special occasion.
First we were served some lovely warm bread with butter which was yummy!
Before the starter we have a shot of lime/melon/stawberry to awaken the taste buds, and it most certainly did. I had the potted mackerel which was devine. Everyone else else absolutely loved their starters as well..
Main course I had the sirloin steak with fondant potatoes or a savoy with a red win jus... WOW is all I can say. I practically licked the plate clean! I would eat that meal over and an over again without getting bored.
Desert was also absolute amazing, especially the passion fruit and rasberry tart... Huge Huge compliments to the chef! Stunning..
The service was another thing to note, they were absolutely amazing. Nothing was a hassle and they were very friendly and nice making this experience a superb one. I know I will be coming back any time I can and three courses for £34 is nothing...
Next time I will stay in one of the cottages as they look great. It's truly a stunning location and I can't wait to come back.
Thank you Tudor Farmhouse for opening my eyes and letting me experience this beautiful food.. 5 Stars without a shadow of a doubt!
