Core by Clare Smyth

It was the end of September when we first payed our first visit to Core and the experience was so good we couldn’t wait to return. So please bear with me that I’m writing another review so soon but believe me if and when you finally dine hear you’ll understand why On our first visit we was thrilled to have been sat at the chefs table which amazing as you could see the chefs in action but on this occasion we had a delightful table by the window with a great view of the restaurant. Due to the fact it had only been a couple of months since our last visit a few of the courses on the Tasting Menu were the same but this turned out not to be a problem as dishes from the Al a Carte & Lunch Menu were transferred over to create a new menu and also to our delight we had a couple of dishes that were not going to be on the menu until the new year. We started out with a couple fabulous cocktails in the bar which is a lovely setting away from the restaurant itself and is a great way to relax before being escorted to the dining room to start our amazing dining experience Our newly designed menu started with a delightful selection of snacks before our first course an amazing Crab & Truffle this was followed by the Charlotte Potato then a brand new dish of Turbot , cockles , clams & a Parsley sauce we then had Chicken , clams & caviars day also the Oxtail stuffed Roscoff Onion with Beef Short Rib then a fantastic Scottish Venison. This led us to the Cheese course which was a Colton Bassett Stilton together with crackers and the most amazing Fig Rolls. Now it was time for dessert and both were stunning a Chocolate & Hazelnut Cremeaux and a Lemonade Parfait then we had some beautiful Petit Fours to finish . A word now for the sommelier who matched each course with a fabulous selection of wines and was himself excellent as in fact was every member of staff so polite,friendly & professional This really is a restaurant that is going to go all the way to the top especially with Clare Smyth who is such a lovely person and found time to chat to us at the end at the helm and a fantastic experienced team behind her and I’m looking forward to our next visit already
