My Brother in-law celebrating his 60th and his friend. Invited my wife and myself celebrating our 45th anniversary, For Sunday lunch at Riverhall on the 16th September 2012. We arrived 15 minutes late. Which did not seem to have caused any problem. Even though the place was busy.
We were shown to the bar and asked if we would like a drink, as our table by the window (As requested ) was not quite ready for us.
We were given menus, so we could decide what we would have to eat while we were having a drink.
All four of us ordered a 3 course meal. The four starters, the soup, the gallia melon, the sardines and the swordfish were excellent.
Three of the four main courses, sea bass x 2, and the lamb were really very good. However, the turkey was not as moist as i was expecting. If fact i would say it was rather quite dry. Having said that, the roasties and the veg were very nice, as were the four desserts from the excellent trolly.
I must say after the meal, we took coffee in the bar area to discuss the meal. Three of four gave it 5/5. I gave it 4/5.
It did however do one thing. It made me appreciate my wifes culinary skills, as she does a mean turkey roast. I should hope so. She's been perfecting it for 45 years.
Would we go back again?. Possibly, in the week to try the other menus.
