Blagraves was our friends choice for a catch up with food, and a new restaurant for us to experience.
Stepping through the front door you are taken out of the fast moving modern world to a more tranquil place, which is part of this Elizabethan building’s charm.
Taking seats in the lounge area we were greeted by a waitress who was friendly, attentive and professional. Cocktails were brought to us whilst the menu was read.
Amuse-Bouche were brought by the waitress which were very tasteful and a great indicator of what lay ahead.
Food orders placed we were later escorted upstairs to the dining room by the waitress.
Although the menu was not extensive, it was perfect in that there was a wide selection of courses all of which could have been chosen.
Cheese soufflés, soup with Cotherstone cheese and the Black pudding salad arrived. The waitress served the ladies first which is all too often over looked by other waiters. Everything was cooked to perfection.
The empty starter plates were removed and after an appropriate period of time the mains arrived. The beef Wellington was a good size without presenting it self as a challenge, a Barnsley chop served with a rich graveyard, goats cheese tart with salad and Stone Bass fillet with chorizo and olives. The food was served on hot including the fish, as were the sides of vegetables and potatoes.
The food was exquisite.
The pudding menu was a further temptation and our selections included ginger sponges, sticky toffee and cheese and biscuits.
Throughout the evening the waitresses were very attentive and genuine, and not to the level where they become a nuisance or false.
When requested the bill arrived which was reasonable for a special catch up in that with all three courses, wine and cocktails was £40 a head.
A real pleasure to visit, first class staff and excellent food - a dining delight.
