Review | The Coach House Inn, Kentisbury
The grand finale came in the guise of dessert intriguingly named: Frozen Chocolate – Caramel and nuts. This was simply stunning visually and of course, on the taste buds too. The block of frozen chocolate was exquisite, a blast of supreme ice-cold, cocoa-laden sweetness.
The frozen chocolate nestled in a lake of caramel at one end with a delicious dollop of rich, chocolate mousse at the opposite side of the bowl. In between and scattered over the pudding were pistachio nuts, sesame seed tuiles, and homemade honeycomb too.
Underneath the frozen chocolate block, I found pieces of chocolate crumble that enhanced this already supremely luxuriant and delicious dessert. It was so tasty that I scraped the plate clean in an effort to harvest every last atom of sweetness.
We couldn’t fault the service of Suzzie and her team in the restaurant, and neither could we criticize the exceptional food cooked and lovingly prepared by Thomas and his team at The Coach House. The various dishes emerged at an even pace that was not too fast or too slow. All in all a fantastic dining experience which we will no doubt be destined to repeat!
