The Stratford unveil new Chef

The Stratford has recently recruited an award-winning Chef, Ben Tynan to run Quills Restaurant. The Stratford introduced Ben and showcased his culinary skills an evening in April. Fresh local produce goes into every dish created by heaf chef Ben and his team which is apparent from the flavour, quality and attention to detail.

Welcome drinks, champagne and canapes were served in the relaxed but classy lounge bar.

The evening began with a leek and spring onion shoup with crisy pancetta and white truffle oil followed by deep fried goats cheese, beetroot, green beans, candied walnut and balsamic.

Ben then served his signature dish, red wine braised ox cheek risotto served with pine nuts, green peppercorns, capers and parmesan.

The next course was salmon escabeche, blood orange and mascarpone, a spanish dish with a taste of the Med!

Rump of Buccleuch lamb and bread crumbed breast of lamb followed with apple and mint puree, broad beans and a tiny black pudding.

Dessert was a beautifully presented chocolate and cherry mousse with grittine cherries and peanut butter ice cream.

The evening closed with coffee and petit fours.

There are many more dishes on The Stratford's Quills menu including a range of vegetarian dishes. There is also an extensive wine list.

For a more relaxed affair, you may dine in the lounge bar.

Quills is ideal for all occasions including pre-theatre dining and Sunday lunches.
