The Conservatory (Exeter, England)

昨日の夕食は、大昔に英語留学した時の最初のクラスの先生だった方と、宿泊していたホテルのすぐ近くの The Conservatory というレストランでご一緒しました。外からの写真を撮っていなかったので、明日忘れなければ撮って追加します。

I had dinner with a friend, who was the teacher of my first class when I stayed in Exeter all those years ago, at a restaurant ‘The Conservatory’ very near my hotel.


First, they served us some olives and focaccia. The olives were nice as they weren’t too salty and the focaccia was very nice – fluffy and chewy at the same time.


For starter, my friend had Goat Cheese and Onion Tartlet and I had Tomato and Mozzarella salad. The salad was very simple but good.


For the main we both had Chicken Supreme. The chicken was over-cooked, tough and dry, and the sauce was too buttery for me although the chicken skin was nice and crispy. The potato dish on the side was good and there was plenty of vegetables, which is good.


For the dessert my friend had Bakewell Tart with Ice Cream and I had Salted Caramel Tart (it would have come with Chantelle Cream but I asked them not to). I thought the tart might be very sweet but it wasn’t, it was bitter-sweet and very nice.


The chicken wasn’t great but the rest was good. All very simple, they didn’t try to cook anything complicated, it was reasonably priced and service was good, too.


The only thing is that if you are vegetarian you will have a problem as the menu is too limited. The choices for starters were just those 2 we had and the main was Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart. Whichever the starter you choose, you have to have something very simple for the main.
