After a recommendation from an admired local radio presenter today, my husband and I decided to try the Bell Inn, Little Addington for a meal this evening. It took a little finding but at least there was plenty of room in the car park. The place was interesting and well decorated although very dark in the dining room even after we pinched candles from another table. There were about another six diners already eating when we arrived. A couple of nice real fires were an added bonus on a cold night. From the limited menu we chose Vegetable Risotto and Gammon. The Risotto was nice and well presented, the Gammon was also fairly well presented but incredibly salty and the chips were undercooked, accompanying spoonful of salad was awful. Anyway my husband ate most of his meal leaving about half of the gammon. A pleasant young waiter informed us that one desert would be complimentary because of the gammon. Great, that made us feel better.
We then followed up with a Cherry Crumble with custard and a Chocolate Fudge Cake with clotted cream.
This would be sure to cheer us up. The crumble came in a tall glass dish and was surprisingly stone cold. We asked the waiter if it was supposed to be cold and he said I don't think so and returned it to the kitchen where they kindly microwaved it and returned it to my husband. My fudge cake was nice and chewy and the fudge sauce was well set on the plate but the clotted cream was nice.
Prices would have been fair if the food had been a bit better. Unfortunately, we will not be going back.
