“A fantastic well presented and tasty meal, if a little tight for anyone over 6'.”
On arrival we were greated with a waiter who was well versed in the art of service, great chat and couldn't have been more engaging, so a good start to our birthday evening meal meal for four,
The menu was simple and easy to follow, which always makes decisions on what to eat much more simple. There were two soup starters, one of which was Cullen Skink along with Soup of the Day, three out of the four of us chose Cullen Skink, and it didn't disappoint, packed with lots of smoked fish it couldn't have tasted better, it was accompanied with some fresh home made bread. The other starter at our table was hot smoked salmon which also went down a treat. so far so very good!
Our waiter again was attentive and engaging, it made me think they had a genuine warmth for their guests at Fanny Trollopes, always a good sign, he looked as though he enjoyed our company as much as his job, this didn't go unoticed!
The main course then followed and it was split among such delights as Monkfish, Shin Beef and Lamb, none of which failed in any area, the portion size, taste and balance between meet and accompanying potatoes / veg was perfect. the waiter had suggested the Shin Beef and although only one of us chose this, it was well recommended, as it was described as 'beautiful' once consumed.
Desert was a three way split for our table between chocolate pot, clutey dumbing and cheese which again were very tasty and plenty of it.
All in all the rating on Trip Advisor for Fanny Trollopes is well deserved, a must visit, just don't expect a frills and glossy place to eat, this is a no frills. If a little cramped (my only critism) restaurant with the best service and food around.
