Dining at The Comfy Duck restaurant within the Oaklands is a refreshing experience. It's obvious a great deal of tasteful consideration & effort has gone into all aspects from the kitchen to front of house.
Simple dishes presented well (fish & chips or even a meaty mixed grill) sit alongside more sophisticated flourishes, such as trout cheesecake with rhubarb, which made a wonderful starter worthy of any London kitchen. There is enough familiarity to ensure comfort, but also enough little touches of quality & adventurous departures from the norm to offer an interesting twist.
The wines on offer are similarly ranged, with an obvious bias towards taste, not snobbery. Several excellent blends (the Richelieus in particular) provide remarkably agile accompaniment across the menu without having to stray far from the top of the list.
Finally, the service strikes a welcoming balance between amiability & ability, so that details are attended to without any air of pretence or stuffiness. High standards successfully filter down from the senior staff to most junior.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience that I look forward to repeating.
