The service was very good and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the lunch set menu and the duck egg starter stood out for me.

Really impressed by the great value set lunch menu. Amazed this place still does not have a Michelin Star. It is a mystery, as Launceston Place has it all. An attractive location, first rate service and some rather impressive cooking. On our visit this week the stand out dishes were the Mackerel which was quite lovely, both in respect of presentation and taste, and the braised duck with Isle of Wight tomato fondue . To go with these dishes we had a side order of Jersey Royal New Potatoes, they were smothered in butter, perfectly cooked with that wonderful earthy taste that epitomises Jersey Royals - just fabulous.


Lunch today from the short lunch menu. I caught the kitchen on a bad day. The watercress soup was over-salted. A quick taste before leaving the kitchen would have spotted this. The slow braised duck leg seemed to have been cooked yesterday. On reflection, it's an ambitious lunch dish; do they start cooking it on arrival in the morning? The gooseberry fool with cobnut financier was sweet and stodgy; something from another era. Overall, a heavy meal. I do not understand your 5* rating.
