Missed out on some of the most talked about dishes that have graced the tables of The Lamb at Longdown since it opened a year ago? Fear not, as the rural dining pub is about to release its ‘best of’
Devon’s enthusiastic foodies have waxed lyrical about this just-outside-of-Exeter dining pub since chef Dolton Lodge relaunched the village boozer a year ago.
While his impressively local à la carte dishes (think torched celeriac with confit yolk, granny smith apple and truffle) and stellar examples of British classics (we’re talking beer battered haddock with triple cooked chips and crushed peas) set tongues wagging, the introduction of a tasting menu this spring takes the dining experience to the next level.
‘It’s something we’ve always wanted to do at The Lamb and our first birthday in March was the perfect excuse to launch a tasting menu of our favourite dishes so far,’ explains Dolton. ‘They’ll change depending on what local and seasonal produce we can get our hands on and which combinations our customers have most enjoyed.’
In April, diners lucky enough to score a table at the contemporary country inn can expect a six course line-up featuring seasonal faves including asparagus, rhubarb, purple sprouting broccoli and wild garlic. The tasting menu will also include dishes, such as the umamirich forest fungi number, which have already reached signature status.
