Meet our new King of the Kitchen, Russell Mountford, Head Chef
Russell grew up in Shropshire. The countryside and flavours have always been close to him. Moving to Yorkshire gave him the same feeling and excitement he got when he was younger. He's looking to keep our classic style British food but with his own spin. Having trained in rosette kitchens and travelling in Europe and Australia he will also be bringing his experience of international cuisine to our classic English dishes. His favourite time of year for produce is Spring, with all the fresh, light flavours, so we are really excited to see how he develops our menu during 2018!
Our Head Chef has introduced some delicious new seasonal dishes onto our a la carte menu and these are just a few of his favourites...
Fried on a low heat in olive oil and lemon juice to give a crispy skin. Sautéed cabbage bacon and carrots mixed with creamy mashed potato to make a tasteful bubble and squeak, finished with a white wine and mussel veloute.
Confit Duck Leg
Duck cooked in oil with star anise bay leaf and clove for 3 hours until the meat falls off the bone, served with creamed mash, spiced red cabbage cooked in red wine, then served with a red wine reduction and juniper berries. Delicious!
Soft boiled egg covered in seasoned sausage meat then covered in bread crumbs, served with a sweet homemade piccalilli and homemade chorizo mayo. Melts in your mouth!
Dark Chocolate Brownie
Warm homemade chocolate brownie made with gluten free flour. The top is crunchy and the centre gooey to make sure it's the perfect dessert. Served with a sweet chocolate sauce and delicious vanilla ice cream. So good.
