The Lamb and Trotter
Our beers and wines have been carefully selected by our very own sommeliers who regularly hold tutored beer, wine and food pairing sessions. Our menu has been meticulously created by our head chef Danny who is absolutely passionate about his use of fresh seasonal produce.
Went with a friend for a post-office bite to check out this recent neighbourhood addition next to my gym and loved the place. Shared the starter salad of Mulled-wine poached pear with blue cheese and caramelised walnuts - a refreshing and delicious taste combo. As mains we chose the Butternut squash pearl barley risotto with toasted chestnuts and sage - a winter-warmer reminiscent of cosy home-cooked meals but with enough finesse to fight its corner on a restaurant menu; and a mouth-watering Cornish off-the-bone plaice with samphire, brown shrimp butter and roasted lemon. Instead of sides we opted for 2 puddings: the Discovery apple and a moorish Boozy sherry trifle with raspberries. Service was prompt and friendly with excellent shift-handover (thank you Andrew and Sam!) and the atmosphere relaxed. Having arrived early, we shared the restaurant space downstairs with just a handful of diners but the buzzing bar areas upstairs and downstairs hinted at more traffic later. We will definitely be back!
Our first time and the food and service was great.
Have wanted to come here for a while and came for a weekday lunch with friends - pleasant welcome, good sounding menu with about 5 or 6 choices for each course, including a couple of veggie friendly options. The waitress was coping alone so there was a bit of a wait for ordering but she was friendly and happy to recommend a wine choice. Food was tasty and a good portion, enjoyed by all of us. Would be happy to return and try the upstairs bar too.
Good lunch. Gaining in popularity.
I discovered the Lamb and Trotter through a friend who had Birthday drinks and so when I needed to find a location for a Business lunch I decided to give it a try as close to my office. I am so glad I did the food was excellent and the service was relaxed but professional and attentive enough without being over the top. I would highly recommend either for a drink and small bite or a sit down lunch. We are going back soon as we have booked the venue for our team Christmas party and I am sure there will be many more visits in the future.
