After a truly wonderful morning wandering around Yorkshire Sculpture Park…..it is time for lunch. The restaurant here is not just convenient, their food looks fresh and there is even a hint of artistic invention coming from the kitchen.
Rock chooses a bottle of Fentiman’s sparkling lime and jasmine. It probably sounds more interesting than it tastes but it is pleasant. I have a Treacle Stout from the Ossett Brewery , an excellent rich, dark and complex ale… I am really enjoying it.
The menu here is not huge but there is variety. Rock selects a large flat mushroom stuffed with a spicy mix of beans and chilli, topped with cheese and served with spicy rice and a salad. I go for the smoked trout and avocado salad with marinated olives, asparagus, red onion and baby leaves. Both are full of high quality, fresh ingredients that are freshly prepared… and they deliver on flavour.
No real works of art in the restaurant but simple, honest, fresh produce that has been put together with some imagination.
