Lunch at Dinner

The CG and I swapped date night for date day yesterday, and headed to Heston Blumenthal's Dinner for a long Sunday lunch. 

I really liked the concept of the history behind the dishes, and we both had starters adapted from recipes from the 18th century which were delicious - they looked almost messy on plate when they arrived, with individual components being difficult to identify, but the flavours were amazing.


Hay Smoked Mackerel

Mains were fine, but not incredible, but I think this is mainly down to the fact that they weren't as different as the other courses available. They were what you'd expect to find in any good restaurant.

Black Foot Pork Chop

Fillet of Aberdeen Angus

But the tipsy cake for dessert - a kind of sugared brioche with two hour spit roasted pineapple - was definitely the highlight of the meal.

Special mention goes to the faultless service - with at least five different wait staff attentively making sure we never had to lift a hand to get attention for anything. 

And as for date days instead of nights? A definite winner.
