Homage to the Harrow

On Saturday Janet and I went to The Harrow at Little Bedwyn to celebrate the end of MW exams week.  As it was a special occasion we chose the set 8-course gourmet menu.  For wine we started with glasses of Nyetimber (fabulous) and Hambledon (very tight, lean, refreshing) English sparkling; moved on to Pewsey Vale Riesling 2009 (excellent as always) and quite stunning Lenswood Semillon Barossa 1998 (this was so good it had to be forceable extracted from the restauranter’s hand!); and then tackled the very good Comte Armand, Volnay AC, 2007 – a complex wine with pronounced blackberry, herbaceous and farmyardy aromatics, a creditable effort in a very difficult, cool and rainy vintage.  The food was spectacularly good – precision cuisine which tasted as it good as it looks in the photos below.  And the staff are very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We can’t recommend the Harrow highly enough.
