Unfortunately it’s been a while since we’ve been able to make a return visit to Trinity but honestly it was worth the wait. The food here is simply amazing and when you combine this with excellent friendly service in a lovely relaxing atmosphere you will just want to keep coming back. Well that’s personally how this place has made us feel.
We decided to take advantage of our holiday being cancelled by choosing to have a bit of a foodie week so therefore with no hesitation booked a lunchtime slot at Trinity. We arrived on a tuesday and was given a great welcome back by manager Ashley before he escorted us to our table. Once settled we were shown the menus where you had the choice of a Tasting Menu or the Lunch Menu where you choose a dish from each of the four sections. We chose to have the lunch menu and once we had made our choices we then met the sommelier and with his help chose a fabulous Francois Chidaine Le Chenin d’Ailleurs 2016 that complimented the majority of the dishes perfectly.
We decided to start with the Tuna Ceviche , BBQ Gazpacho Consommé , Tomatoes & Basil that according to my wife was absolutely delicious. I chose the Tartlet of English Peas & Truffle which started nice and fresh but when got deeper into the the tart the richness from the truffle sent my palate dancing with delight.
Next to come was a fabulous Sardine Bolognese Raviolo with a Tomato Butter Sauce & Basil. My choice was the Crispy Pork Jowl with Girolles , Summer Squash & Courgette Blossom which was another flavour sensation.
It was at this point that we saw chef/owner Adam Byatt arrive in the restaurant and before the arrival of our third course he came over to our table for firstly an informal chat then to check that everything was ok. We told him that the food was amazing and how this restaurant has become a big favourite of ours so were looking forward to many more visits in the future. So now to the next dishes themselves and yes they were as delightful as the first two. The Norfolk Quail ‘jardiniere’ with Summer Butter & Lovage was just fabulous. I opted for the Turbot on the Bone with Coco Beans & Provençal Tomatoes which was absolutely sublime.
CHEESE & DESSERT
Before moving onto dessert we decided to have an additional Cheese Course consisting of six cheeses , crackers , chutney & salad. Now it was time for dessert where my wife chose the Cherry Soft Serve with Amaretti & Kirsch that as a cherry lover she absolutely loved. I decided on the Tartlet of Yellow Peaches , Syllabub & Pistachio that was not only delicious but artistry on a plate.
We finished with tea , coffee & madeleines to bring to an end a truly fabulous lunch. I can’t recommend a visit to this restaurant highly enough and personally will be returning sooner rather than later. The food , wine & service here is first class so get booking a table now.
Thank You Adam , Ashley and all your team for a fantastic lunch and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
