Le Talbooth

Stratford Road, DEDHAM, Colchester, CO7 6HN

2 rosettes

In a former toll house by the River Stour dating from Tudor times, The Milsom family have run this East Anglian stalwart for over half a century. Inside, the look is slick and contemporary, and the kitchen stays abreast of culinary trends. Pan-roasted skate wing served with razor clams, smoked shallots and lardo is a thoughtfully composed starter. Next up, pot-roast sea bass fillet is partnered with seared squid, saffron tagliatelle, spinach and pickled cockles, or you might try venison saddle with thyme-infused polenta, blackberries, kale and red wine jus. An inventive apple-themed dessert brings a classic tarte Tatin, sorbet, apple and sage doughnut and poached blackberries.
