After so long I finally made it to Meredith’s! For a special 3 year anniversary dinner my Bf and I treated ourselves to the 6 course degustation!
Where to start? The amuse bouche was a pop of flavour in your mouth. These very light meringues just melted in your mouth and tbh I don’t normally like them but these changed my opinion! – For those who don’t know what an amuse bouche is – a little taster or starter before a meal.
I found that Meredith’s is amazing at layering their food and ensures plenty of texture in their dishes. The best dish has to be the lamb! The flavour was amazing and the neck was cooked to perfection. Im not a huge fan of duck due to its fatty taste but since your paying for it – I had to try it. Funny enough I really enjoyed it. Only two small faults I could find with the meal. The Salmon dish, was just incredibly salty so maybe someone just got a bit heavy handed with the salt or maybe its suppose to be that salty? and Secondly the venison dish was a bit of a let down. The venison was covered in so much of the sauce that the meat got lost and if you didn’t know any better you could have been eating any meat.
Overall, the dishes are displayed beautifully and I know how much preparation goes into each of the dishes (which is damn lot). The food is very efficient and the waiter who served us was extremely knowledgeable and polite. We would have tipped if the option was there!
If you have a special occasion, go try a degustation and test your tastebuds!
