It was the belated birthday meal for our friend Alison. The Three Acres is one of our very favourite pub restaurants, and we hadn't been for quite a while. It did not disappoint. We did not have starters - we know from experience that we would not be able to eat a dessert if we did.
I had the Duck main course, with Bramble jus, celeriac and parsnip puree and mashed potato. The confit duck leg was superb, the breast was perfectly cooked and I loved it all:
Mary and Alison both had the fish pie. They pronounced it the best they had eaten in a restaurant:
We then had the Assiette of desserts to share. Miniature portions of everything on the menu. Everything was good but the bread and butter pudding and the sherry cherry trifle were particularly special. I forgot to take a photograph when it arrived at the table, but you get the general idea:
The restaurant was extremely busy, with at least one large party going on, but the service was very good and we never had to wait long for anything. Three mains, a shared dessert, three drinks - it all came to about £79. Highly recommended.
