While an unfortunate emergency on the part of one of our guests somewhat delayed our meal, staff were incredibly understanding about the fact and we used the time enjoy the bar and relish the view. On returning to the restaurant, our table again afforded magnificent views of the park and we set to the food.
We started with Cured Loch Duart salmon, Cornish crab, avocado cream & fennel compote, together with Risotto of wild mushrooms, pickled walnut & pecorino emulsion. The salmon presented a lively plate with bold splashes of green from the avocado cream, fresh white crab and alluring scoops of caviar. It worked really well as a dish, all the ingredients tasted first class and the dish overall was lively, fresh and quite moorish. The risotto was similarly tasty, perhaps a little more al dente than our usual preference but still a very good dish.
