We had wanted to go to Wallet's Court for some time, and it is certainly a lovely building in beautiful surroundings.Having booked for a wedding anniversary meal when they were advertising the 'Winter Menu' on their website we were disappointed that the 'Spring Menu' seemed less interesting and varied; never mind, we thought, there are still several interesting dishes here. But on arrival, we found that the day menu was a shorter version, with fewer starters and desserts, and with one of the more interesting main courses and two of the starters replaced. In fact there were only 2 desserts (one cheese, at a supplement). However, to give full credit when we expressed disappointment that the 'Fig Soufflé' was missing we were immediately told that the chef could provide that if we wished; we did wish!
The starters we had were the nice - carrot & orange soup and Wood pigeon salad - if not particularly large. The mains were interesting - Slow roasted belly pork was very nice, but again small; Beetroot risotto was nicely produced and the traditional roast beef very copious, and perfectly nice (if a little red for my taste), but nothing any good carvery could not do.
The desserts were mixed - the Soufflé was delicious, but didn't taste of fig at all ('blood orange' - we thought?) and the chocolate tart wasn't a tart, but really just a (very rich & nice tasting) small chocolate ganache...! Strangely the rather boring sounding Yoghurt Mousse looked, as far as we could see from another table - to be both interestingly presented and pretty large!
All in all Wallet's Court is a very impressive building, where one can relax for a good break, but the choice in the menu is not great, and the value for money not wonderful. Maybe somewhere to impress a foreign friend or relative who likes to think of England as white washed walls and wooden beams?
