This month we’re loving the smoked mackerel pâté starter, served with a spiced rhubarb purée.
The two-course set lunch on weekdays and Saturdays offers a choice of five starters and six mains, each with two vegetarian choices plus plenty for fish lovers.
This month we’re loving the smoked mackerel pâté starter, served with a spiced rhubarb purée. The apple and potato salad topped with spiced chicken strips and scattered with crushed walnuts is also a worthy contender on the new menu.
Perfect for the new season are the lightly grilled spring lamb chops, lying on a bed of parsnip and potato puree with jus and greens, and the Insalata di Manzo – really good beef fillet on a wild rocket and red onion salad, with parmesan aioli for dipping opportunities. As well as a potato gnocchi dish, vegetarians can opt for the unusual Rotolini – stone-baked pizza rolls with smoked mozzarella and artichokes on a Pomodoro sauce.
The two-course lunch menu is £16.95 and available Monday-Thursday 12-6pm and Friday-Saturday 12-4pm.
The three-course set lunch menu for Sundays has five starters to choose from, including the delicious and oh-so-seasonal Bufala e Asparagi, or buffalo mozzarella, asparagus and garden pea salad.
There are also five main courses, each served with herb roast potatoes and market-fresh vegetables. As well as a vegetarian option and fresh fish, there are three Rossi roasts: young chicken, leg of lamb and prime beef sirloin.
For afters, you can indulge your sweet tooth with the likes of salted caramel and dark chocolate tartlet or the gelato selection of homemade ice creams and sorbets.
The three-course Sunday lunch menu is £25 and available 12-6pm.
