I was lucky enough to be treated to a meal at Cottage in the Wood on New Year Eve by fiancée.
Surroundings: As soon as you walk into Cottage in the Wood you feel at home. You can imagine being in someone’s home – comfortable sofa and a roaring fire.
Staff: The owner (Kath) is so friendly and helpful – nothing is to much bother. She makes you feel at home. The other staff members are also very friendly and very professional
The canapés were very tasty especially the cheese puffs
The starter of the crab and salmon was lovely. I was worried as I am not keen on either of these ingredients but I could have eaten more.
Game Platter – wee tastes of pigeon, duck and venison. Was very tasty and just the right size.
Scallops – cooked to perfection and amazing with the ham that was served with it.
Gin Fizz – One word to describe this: wow. My only complaint was that I wanted a second (or third) helping!!!!!
Lamb with haggis, neeps and tatties - This was the first time I ordered lamb in a restaurant and it was beautiful. It was a lovely for Kath to ask how we wanted the lamb cooked – and it was cooked to perfection
Goats Cheese cooked in Charcoal – this was lovely and just the right size
Pear Dessert – my fiancée and I are unable to have chocolate so Kath organised an amazing Pear dessert. It was roasted pears with caramelised sugar, pear sorbet on a tulie and a beautiful parfait. This (along with the Gin Fizz) was my favourite course.
This was followed by coffee\tea and homemade lemon turkish delights.
I would recommend the Cottage in the Wood to anyone: amazing food, beautiful surroundings and fantastic staff.
Cottage in the Wood deserves a Michelin star.
