The Wife of Bath
Nestled in the historic village of Wye, the venue exudes charm, with everything
from the rustic decor and hospitable service to the exemplary food and drink
offering designed to ensure that visitors receive a first-rate dining experience.
Our meal began with succulent scallops, Jerusalem artichokes and spicy
chorizo, and a beautifully prepared plate of rabbit, chorizo, Savoy cabbage and
romesco sauce. Both dishes combined colour, flavour and texture to excellent
effect. For the main course, our knowledgable waiter recommended that my
wife try the hake. It arrived alongside asparagus and radishes and was drizzled
in a tangy Seville orange and gin sauce. She was glad she had heeded the
waiter’s advice and promptly devoured every bite. Meanwhile, I had Angus
beef albondigas accompanied by grilled hispi cabbage and sweet peppers. The
vegetables complemented the meat well – the chef evidently has a penchant
for pairing components to create
dishes that are delicious. Melt-in-the-
mouth chocolate tart topped
with Folkestone rock salt drew my meal to a close, while my wife
enjoyed a finale of creamy raisin ice cream drizzled in sherry.
The meal was perfect from beginning to end, and we are already
planning a return visit to sample from the tapas menu and make use
of the luxurious bedrooms.
