Beef Cheeks and Langoustines: "The best of quality produce is used and sourced locally." "a most enjoyable starter plate in a very good portion. The succulent and 'meaty' langoustines were perfectly cooked. The cheeks had been slowly braised and the meat then shredded. The large ravioli had been freshly made." "A great idea to layer the horseradish and parsley crust, which complemented the dish perfectly." "Visually excellent; the starter dish was technically very well put together, and would translate well into a main course option."
