the restaurant has a brasserie and a fine dining space. we chose fine dining, which provides a three-course menu for £55 per person.
shortly after we were seated, a selection of lovely aperitifs arrived. olives (excellent), parmesan wafers, smoked salmon blini stacks, mini bacon pizzas, shrimps with crisp breads and most excitingly a pea soup served atop a clear mint jelly.
this was followed by an amuse bouche of richly flavoured calves liver parfait with warm rosemary jelly (the second jelly to feature). the parfait was served as a teaspoon-sized quenelle but given the richness and depth of flavour it was more than ample and a lovely way to prepare for our meal.
