Ellis restaurant within the grand setting of an elegant mansion house is picture perfect, with a menu to match! To start, I enjoyed the Prawn and Crayfish Tian. A fresh starter, packed full of plump prawns and crayfish, bound together with a silky Marie Rose sauce, it was delicious. Mrs Exquisite opted for the creamy goats cheese bon bons. Served with a tomato and black olive salsa and balsamic caviar, it made for the perfect start. To follow I just had to try their bouillabaisse. Simply the freshest seafood served in a rich Provençale sauce, this one of the best bouillabaisses I have eaten outside of Marseille! Mrs Exquisite couldn’t fault the perfectly cooked pan seared sea bass. Served with Charlotte potatoes, seasonal vegetables and saffron cream, it was a wonderful dish. To complete this superb meal we shared the artisan cheese board. With Greenwood’s homemade chutney, it was perfect to enjoy whilst finishing our wine.
