We were staying in the area recently for my birthday and booked in advance here after reading the reviews on tripadvisor.
The service is excellent with the friendly chef coming out to explain the dishes to us and bringing out samples inbetween courses.
We started with a free amuse bouche that the chef brought out of pickled herring with potato salad, so tasty and fresh tasting. He then brought out 2 small loaves of homemade bread and homemade butter, the bread was still hot and so crispy, really good!
Our starters of scallops for me and pigeon breast with lamb bacon for my girlfriend were delicious, the lamb bacon was lovely.
A free sorbet pallette cleanser was then brought out, so tangy and well made.
For mains i had lamb noisettes with bulgar wheat, butternut squash puree and vegetables, my girlfriend had herb crusted pork tenderloin with pasta rice, vegetables and gravy. They were both delicious and my girlfriend said it was the best gravy she had ever had and the pork was so tender. My lamb was gorgeous! Cooked to perfection.
The desserts were heavenly, i had chocolate mousse which was so silky smooth which came with fresh berries. My girlfriend had deconstructed carrot cake which she absoloutely loved.
The prices are a little on the high side but you do get what you pay for with the amuse bouche and samples.
Do not be put off from the outside because this restaurant does not disappoint.
We will definitely return if we are in the area
