Menu finalised for 8th November

I’ve been watching the weather and waiting to see if this wonderful and prolonged Indian summer would come to an end and if so would we want to eat rich, hearty stews and pies. But it seems we are in for more of the same for a while and so the menu reflects that cusp of the seasons. Light terrine of ham hock, chowder with seared scallops and then roast partridge so plentiful in the butchers that they’re hard to ignore. To finish, the comfort of rice pudding, a winter staple to keep the chill at bay, but with the exotic twist of cardamom and pistachios.
