This popular Pinner restaurant is run by Terry Farr, a chef-patron with previous at The Connaught, A L'Ecu de France and The Savoy. Plenty of pedigree, then. We presume a cordial welcome, too, given the name.
The modern-European menu borrows from classical French techniques and dishes. Expect, then, rabbit terrine or pressed duck confit with feta, pomelo and pickled watermelon alongside grilled squid with risotto nero and a pecorino tuille, pan-fried haddock with a sweet potato mash and a mussel and clam velouté, and roast duck breast with a bitter orange sauce and rösti.
Wine is a big deal here, with worlds old and new represented but with the focus on big-hitting French regions such as Burgundy, Bordeaux, Loire and Languedoc. Farr champions British producers, too – keep an eye out for wines from Kenton Estate Vineyards and the Brightwell Vineyard in Oxfordshire.
