NEW MAY DISHES & COCKTAILS
Carrot & Orange Soup . Coriander
A delicious balance of sweet and savoury. The sweetness of the carrot and the orange pairs wonderfully with the salt & pepper and coriander infused olive oil - creating a zesty, refreshing and summery taste sensation. Garnished with fried cauliflower and sprinkled with diced carrots, it is beautiful both inside and out!
Charred Asparagus . Red Pepper Arancini . Lemon Mayonnaise
The charred, blanched asparagus are framed with streaks of delicious lemon mayonnaise – a more refreshing and summery alternative to the previous accompaniment of goats curd. The soothing, deep fried arancini is filled with diced red peppers which adds a heart-warming, smoky flavour to this delightfully light dish.
La Latteria Burrata . Heritage Tomato . Crunchy Buckwheat
This small and exquisitely fresh 'burratina' is served with delicate chunks of heritage tomato which are in full season and bring an optimum freshness to ones palette. It is dressed with balsamic glaze and olive oil to add a gentle acidity and sprinkles of pan fried buckwheat bring a delightfully crunchy contrast to the smoothness of the burrata - which positively dissolves in one’s mouth...
Gin Cured Salmon . Grapefruit . Pickled Golden Beetroot
The deliciously thin slices of salmon are cured in an exotic mixture of salt, sugar, orange, gin and dill for 24 hours creating an exquisite flavour. Drizzles of horseradish cream on the plate add an extra kick and the golden grapefruit and pickled beetroot bring all the refreshing flavours together beautifully - creating a powerful zest. The rocket adds a gentle crunch to the general smoothness of the texture.
Poached Plaice . Spinach . Lobster Cream . Crispy Leek
Deliciously soft, the plaice sits atop a bed of mixed leaf spinach and is drizzled in succulent lobster & crab cream sauce. Hints of brandy in the sauce add a gentle potency and a few delicate additions of crayfish bring out the essence of the seafood flavours. Fried crispy leeks sprinkled like a halo above the plaice add an exquitely salty crunch to the texture.
Roast Pork Belly . Watercress Purée . Black Pudding . Caramelised Apple
The careful process behind this dish explains its magnificent flavour…The pork belly is cured for 3- 4 hours in salt, tamarind, rosemary, thyme, & garlic and then cooked in the oven overnight for about 8 hours. The skin of the pork is pan fried - creating a divine crispy crunch which goes wonderfully with the refreshing watercress purée. The slice of the black pudding paired with the sweet zestiness of the caramelised apple, creates a phenomenal sensation of tastes and textures. A classic British dish; it is a Bistro favourite.
Strawberry & Mango Pavlova
The delicate sweet crunch of the meringue, paired with the delectable juiciness of the fresh mango and strawberry slices creates an absolutely ethereal taste. The plate is decorated with mango jelly, strawberry coulis, and micro mint - adding further freshness and the sprinkles of icing sugar bring the flavours to life. Classic, creamy and fresh this simple dessert with fresh fruit is the perfect finale to a delicious meal!
