New years Eve Dinner at the Manor House Inn
This is the third time I have been here and both of the other times I had the Beef Wellington and french onion soup. They were great. This year we decided to try it for New Years Eve. The menu was limited but there was plenty of food to pick from.
I ordered the following:
Fillet minion with truffles - med well
The wife ordered:
Fillet minion with truffles - med rare
There were four crepes on my plate, included was chopped onion and a cucumber sauce. They were tasty.
The wife's duck had little fat and at least 6 slices of duck. The duck was cooked to perfection.
The lobster Bisque was so salty that it almost destroyed my taste buds. I do not know what happened but all I can say is do not order sea food there!
The wife's mushroom Bisque has some cherry in it and was great.
The pear salad was good, it included some blue cheese and nuts but someone forgot to put the pear on the plate. Points were lost.
The Fillet minion with truffles was tender as expected but suffered in my pallet due to the overdose of salt that continued to linger.
The cake and moose were good alas, the salt overdose of salt sickened my tummy.
The atmosphere was great. The harp music was excellent. There was a time I thought they were the best in the area. But now I no longer believe it. If you go there eat the minion but stay away from the lobster Bisque!!
Do not get me wrong the wife loved her dinner. She talked about it all day. She raved about the duck, her soup and the portions.
