This week I was treated to a meal at Chiltern Firehouse with the boy and Papa Shepherd.
Known for being a hard-to-get-into celebrity hotspot, I was intrigued by what was to come.
After finding the slightly hidden entrance we were greeted by many friendly hosts who showed us to the restaurant. Unfortunately there had been a confusion with our reservation (safe to say I wasn’t particularly impressed) so we were shown to the bar in the hope they could find us a table.
Thankfully before we got ready to move on, we were invited to sit down at one of the best tables in the restaurant. The interior is just lovely, a classic ‘outdoors brought indoors’ theme with modern lighting and a buzzing atmosphere.
After scanning the wine list I chose an Italian red to accompany the duck main I had already decided on.
Dad went for the Wood Grilled Cauliflower Heart whilst Allyn opted for the Pan Roasted Chicken. We added two sides of Maple-Bourbon Sweet Potatoes and a portion of French Fries.
We all loved our mains and were definitely impressed by the flavours. The Maple-Bourbon Sweet Potatoes were by far the best bit, a creamy sweet mash that melted in the mouth.
With room for dessert we opted for three puddings to share between us.
Milk & Honey: milk ice cream with honeycomb and caramel jelly. By far my favourite.
Spiced Pumpkin Brown Butter Pie with Raisin Caramel and Bourbon Cream. A little strong in the alcohol cream for me but a delicious pumpkin pie none the less.
Dark Chocolate Tarte. A classic good choice that was obviously, delicious.
All in all it was an incredible meal and I would highly recommend Chiltern Firehouse to anyone willing to spend some serious cash on amazing food.
