A quiet evening in Dorrington. This is not likely to be unusual. Extensive menus, but for us when it came down to it, it was "this is what we do - tasting menu - so this is what you are having". All very politely served,...More

A most enjoyable evening. An interesting selection of dishes. Very impressed that, having asked for a substitute non meat dish in tasting menu, was served a really fresh tasting vegetarian dish. Portions ideal, especially since extra portions of favoured dishes were readily provided.

On our recent visit the welcome was warm, the food was amazing as always with even more dishes to chose from, atmosphere was relaxed and it was like dining with your best friends (if only they could all cook like this!)

Persian influenced fusion Cuisine - first for the county - at the elegant Black and White, timber framed, building that dates back to the 13th Century; contemporary atmosphere, with a present-day décor, pleasing to the eye. Cuisine renowned for its elaborate rice dishes, delicious kababs, nourishing soups and hearty stews. Persians delicately flavour their food with herbs, spices and dried fruits. A variety of nan-like breads supplement rice.
