I began with an excellent crab salad, packed full of flavour from the brown crab, with the white crab meat adding a light delicate sweetness. The grapefruit adds acidity, and the watercress, salad and radish a peppery but refreshing bite.

Couldn't miss out dessert, especially when there were so many offerings! I went for the chocolate delice, as I'm working on a recipe at the moment and am looking for variations. This one was very rich and deep, and the coconut ice a perfect foil adding a different level of sweetness - the passionfruit puree spikes the palate and offsets some of the richness.

Overall the food was excellent, though I found the service a little haphazard. I rather suspect people remember the food, but are too busy with their client lunch to focus on the minutiae of the service. Obo said his lamb was exquisite, some of the best he'd had, and Valerie liked her rabbit... I definitely want to try the grill now that I've realised they have a Josper grill, and we will return.
