The proprietors of The Newbury have got their priorities right – providing local, seasonal produce and championing the flavour of fresh ingredients. The carefully considered dishes are served in a stylish yet cosy environment, where wooden furniture, flickering candlelight and unobtrusive staff create a calm oasis. My companion opted to begin with smoked salmon and sea vegetables, and I chose the salad of heritage tomatoes with goat’s cheese. Both dishes immediately piqued our excitement, as an artistic arrangement of colours arrived before us. Sea buckthorn and capers gave the salmon dish a deliciously sharp contrast while the sweet taste of my ripe heritage tomatoes was enhanced by a light dressing.

The Newbury presents a range of specials as part of the main course menu, all making use of their suppliers’ speciality meat and fish. These options caught both of our attention – tasty, tender braised lamb neck fillet was served with crushed new potatoes, rich tomato fondue and samphire for my partner. My choice was absolute perfection, a fillet of line-caught mackerel, served with tomato and a sharp sherry vinaigrette dressing. It would take a will far stronger than mine to resist the temptations on this dessert menu. It was a difficult decision, but I eventually chose the liquid cheesecake, a delightfully creamy cheese with raspberry jelly, sherbet and hints of ginger.

All staff at The Newbury share a passion for great food and drink. Attention to detail is absolutely paramount in providing this unique experience, even down to the tap water, which is infused with cucumber. Specific dietary requirements are well catered for, with plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free choices clearly marked on the menu. Not ones to rest on their laurels, the team at The Newbury plans to further extend the range of craft beer and artisan spirits. We would have undoubtedly returned anyway, but it’s always nice to have an excuse.
