Chef Patron is on a mission - to create an exceptional dining experience using quality ingredients and culinary flair. The restaurant is run by an expert husband-and-wife team; front-of-house manager Sally joyfully greets guests, while chef Kevin Doughty (chef profile page 47) uses his unique creative skills to produce exquisite English-European dishes that are certain to impress. Sitting across from a Norman church, this 12th-Century building's picturesque location further adds to the restaurant's charm.

The menus boast a range of refined cuisine; the comprehensive à la carte is especially tantalising, oozing with sophistication and finesse. Begin with the poetically named 'fruits of the sea' ragu, a dish featuring a blend of fresh seafood delicately cooked with chardonnay and rich Parmesan sauce and served within a crisp pastry case - the perfect way to start your gastronomic adventure. Choose the perfectly tender mignon of beef to follow; unbelievably soft, served with meaty lardons and a red wine jus. All main courses are served with the freshest local vegetables as well as the chef's own delicious garlic and cream potatoes.

The Sunday menu offers an array of lunch options from the theatrical carvery trolley. In this show of traditional dining, the meat is carved in front of you at your table. A host of starters, mains and desserts will leave you feeling exceptionally satisfied, your only feeling of disappointment arriving after you have completed your feast. The handmade creamy paté flavoured with a hint of Cognac followed by roasted prime loin of pork with sweet apricot stuffing and wine jus is a winning combination. Top it all off with homemade chocolate fondant and your choice from a variety of homemade ice creams.

Celebrate your big day by taking advantage of the wonderful wedding services offered by Chef Patron. Because this is an independently run company, your wedding service will be tailored specifically to your requirements. The team here cater for any type of wedding, from an intimate party to a large reception. The wedding menu presents a range of delicious cuisine appropriate for your special day, taking the stress out of catering for a large range of tastes. Chef Patron boasts the finest cuisine and first-rate service - you simply won't find anywhere better
