Harpur's of Melbourne

2 Derby Road, MELBOURNE, DE73 8FE

2 rosettes

The inn evolved in the 19th century from a pair of Georgian houses in this lovely market town. These days, it puts on all sort of special occasions, and there's plenty going on in the smart first-floor restaurant. Pub classics such as mussels in beer, burgers, and steaks with chunky chips are the backbone, but there are also modern dishes like duck liver parfait rolled in shiitake mushrooms, served with cured breast and plum sauce, or rolled fillet of cod with mango and Asian spices and two purées, one of cauliflower, one of sweet potato. Exhilaratingly colourful desserts include passionfruit parfait and blood orange pannacotta with pineapple and coconut.
