Liz had pumpkin and parmesan risotto to begin with. Duncan said they had the sort of vegetable supplier who phoned and said 'Ive got these great pumpkins but they must be eaten today.' So he took a couple and knocked up the risotto.
I had crab and mango salad which was simplicity itself but not two things I'd put together before.
Main course Liz had salmon, potatoes and roasted fennel. Fantastic piece of fish. Really rough, earthy, wild flavour. I had rump of baby deer. Liz said it would only have sounded worse if it had said 'ickle baby deer'. Well it was fantastic; moist, rich, gamey and pink. Served with mustard mash and red cabbage.
Desserts included creme broule (Liz) and treacle tart (me). Treacle tart was made with lemon as all good ones should be.
One glass of champagne, one V&T, bottle of Synergy pinot noir and two coffees. Less than a ton for the lot including service. A simple two course meal with no wine and tap water is £20 a head; less on Mondays.
Sensibly sized portions. Go there.
