Fresh scallops with black pudding & crushed peas
Available in starter or main course size, you cannot go wrong with this classic combination of fresh scallops seared to perfection with rich black pudding topped off with crushed peas.
Lightly battered skate with lardons, salsa verde, mustard & tarragon
If you haven’t tried this yet, now’s your chance! Perhaps a little unusual, but once you taste it, it all makes sense. From the lightly battered skate with the wafers of the lardons gently infusing their rich smoky flavour to the punchy salsa verde, mustard and tarragon, this is truly a sublime creation!
Raspberry red velvet cake
When it comes to luxurious desserts, you simply can’t beat a raspberry red velvet cake. And when you marry that with a white chocolate filling and orange and peppermint yoghurt, it’s like summer on a plate.
Cold seafood platter
The pièce de résistance, the cold platter! This is everything you love from the menu all in one dish – dressed crab, tiger prawns, cockles, mussels, oysters and smoked salmon, a real treat made all the more special by adding a lobster on top just in case you were still hungry!
Sea trout with purple carrot ketchup, clementine, celery & tarragon
Gently smoked, ethically reared sea trout slices, served with chefs special recipe ‘purple carrot ketchup’ – yes, I know it sounds very cheffy, but on this occasion we can forgive him as it’s totally worth it. Add the fresh clementine, celery and tarragon and we have yet another flavour combination that leaves nothing to be desired.
