A VERY warm welcome awaits you at The Inn at The Elm Tree.

After ordering drinks at the bar we were shown to our table, situated in a stylish restaurant.

My husband and I went for the parfait with warm toast to start, followed by the rib eye steak for me, and the lamb for my partner.

The parfait was very well presented, accompanied by a rocket salad and red onion chutney. It was home made, and so smooth that it glided across the warm toast with ease.

Our delicious main course followed and we were far from disappointed. The rib eye was succulent, and was so tender it could have been cut with a butter knife.

The homemade, three-times fried chips were crispy, and were a delicious accompaniment to the steak.

The lamb can only be described as exquisite! In fact, it was so delicious, I helped eat it. Dressed in a tasty gravy, and accompanied by new potatoes and roasted vegetables it was tender, and simply melted in the mouth.

The roasted vegetables were cooked to perfection, with a selection of carrots, parsnips and butternut squash. For desert, we chose the Crème Brule, which came presented with white chocolate biscuit, and creamy vanilla ice cream.

Once cracked, the crystallised topping, the creamy custard like filling was delicately flavoured with vanilla.

A perfect, indulgent finish to a fantastic dining experience.

With drinks our bill came to £45.
