I've found that the higher up the restaurant, generally, the better trained the staff are. Fera is no exception. The service is excellent, understated and efficient. Even when I push my luck on the set menu. Could I swap this dish for that? "Yes no problem sir." I cheekily do this a few times and they don't bat an eyelid. Mrs Bacon glares at me a few times though.
L'Enclume and The French.
Rosemary cracker, blue cheese mousse, elderberry.
Stewed Rabbit, Lovage.
Smoked Roe and Red Cabbage.
Brined ox tongue, Cornish carrots, pickled mushroom, buttermilk, tarragon & parsley doesn't quite live up the the previous dish. I'd thought that it'd be a proper ox tongue, missing out the 'brined' bit in haste whilst reading the menu.
