Today we went to Dill and Bay in Rothwell. It's a new venture started by someone who used to run a supper club. I’d read good things about it and it’s only ten minutes from where we live so we went for Sunday lunch. We were shown to a small lounge area for a drink while we looked at the menu. To start Mary went for goat’s cheese cake while I had asparagus wrapped in prosciutto with a crispy egg. Both were beautifully presented and thoroughly enjoyed. For the main course we both opted for the roast beef which came pink, though cooked through enough for my taste. All the elements of the main course were really good - the roast potatoes had a proper crunch round the edges and the homemade Yorkshire puddings were really crisp with just the right amount of body left in the base. All the vegetables were cooked just right for us, and you could tell there was plenty of meat juice in the gravy. We are in the middle of the asparagus season and it showed - the soup of the day was asparagus, my starter was asparagus and there was asparagus in the bowl of vegetables with the roast beef.
Unfortunately when we had finished all this we did not have enough room for dessert, which was a shame because if they were as good as the other two courses they’d have been delightful. We eat out on Sunday often, and this was one of the best lunches we have had recently. We hope to visit again soon.
