It's been a while since we had lunch at The Gazelle, so we decided to visit to see what the 'new management' had done for the restaurant. It's worth visiting for the spectacular views alone, but good food was what we wanted on this occasion!
First thing we noticed was a general facelift - it all looked spic and span, which was pleasing. There wasn't an extensive menu (it was a Sunday lunch), but it was adequate.
We opted for Prawn cocktail followed by roast beef.
The Prawn cocktail came in a '70's' style tall glass, with a very tasty fresh bread roll alongside it. It was a generous portion and had been freshly prepared. No surprises there!
We had to wait a while for our main course, but that, again, was freshly prepared. It was good, solid grub! The beef was very tasty and tender, if slightly too well done for us. There was a large Yorkshire pud (a tad 'doughy' inside), a lovely smooth mash, a roastie and roasted parsnips. There was also a side dish of mixed vegetables (not sure what the carrots were pretending to be; they were neither whole nor mashed). You couldn't grumble about the size of the meal!
We ate, looking at the snowy hills over the Menai Straight and very pleasant it was too!
It gets terribly crowded in the summer, so appreciate it in the low season! Good luck to the 'new management'.
