Inspired by travels around France, the à la carte menu features starters of rope-grown mussels steamed with shallots, thyme, white wine and a splash of cream. For the main event, why not go for pan-fried chicken in a classic chasseur sauce of red wine, mushroom and concasse tomato? Lighter dishes include a warm salad of beetroot, roasted root vegetables, almonds, hummus and harissa. Desserts are the pièce de résistance and include chocolate delice and classic crème brûlée.
