What a nose! Beach, salty sea air, barbeque… but before all that we enjoyed a kale salad with dried sweetened cranberries, toasted pine nuts, freshly grated Parmesan cheese and plenty of rich balsamic vinaigrette. How about the taste? Butter-poached lobster tails with flambé sambuca fennel, brined capers and pickled herring. With water the scent of charred lemon mixed with dill-pickled tuna sandwiches and cucumber smoked salmon bites made us all very hungry. Silky smooth on the palate; campfire baked apples stuffed with raisins and toasted malt loaf with sultanas smothered with salted butter which melted in the heat.
