|Awaiting my date with Jamie Oliver (well his restaurant )|

|Ready for some serious eating|
|The stupendous starters|
For our mains Nicky Rockets had the Bucatini Carbonara which was Tubular spaghetti with crispy fried smoked pancetta and ribbons of leek, tossed with free range eggs and Parmesan. It had a really deep smokey taste and unlike a lot of other restaurants the portion was really hearty. Something my husband really appreciated.
For my main I chose the Wild Truffle Risotto which was finely minced wild black truffle with creamy rice, butter and Parmesan.
|The Wild Truffle Risotto-Sooo nice|
I have obviously heard lots of chefs waffling about how amazing wild truffles are and hadn't really taken any notice. Oh my word. It was just so delicious. This may be the nicest thing I have eaten for a long time. Its described as "a real treat" on the menu which doesn't do it any justice at all. Its magnificent.
|Full of delicious food|
|The Lemon Curd|
Nicky Rockets had the Chocolate and Espresso tart with sticky glazed figs and orange creme fraiche which he described as "absolutely lovely"
|Herbal Tea served in a lovely pot|
We ended our meal with a coffee for Mister Bee and a White Peony herbal tea for me. The bill for the three courses plus drinks (Nicky had a few beers, I had an elderflower Presse ) was £60 which isn't much more than you would pay at any mediocre bistro or cafe. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough and Jamie Oliver I salute you. It was all as you would say "well pukka"
|The empty plates say it all|
So that was the nicest meal I have eaten in a long time. When was your last really memorable meal?
