Review on Pebble Beach
Pierre Chevillard made his name and earned his stars in the grand country-house world of Chewton Glen, but in 2004 he made tracks and headed for Barton on Sea and the relaxed atmosphere of Pebble Beach. This converted pub-with-rooms makes the most of its stunning beachside location, with a terrace providing stunning views towards the Isle of Wight.
Just about anything goes in the kitchen, so don't be surprised if Mediterranean, Chinese and Japanese influences pop up here and there. Seafood comes from Brixham or the local boats and it's used to good effect in dishes like twice-baked crab and ginger soufflé with lemon grass and coconut sauce, tournedos of char-grilled tuna with foie gras, and pot-au-feu of haddock, salmon and sea bass with vegetables.
Other options might range from pan-fried noisettes of Scottish venison with potato and celeriac rösti, roasted pear, spinach and blackberry jus to roast loin of pork rolled in sesame seeds with crisp pork belly, beansprouts and a coriander and soy broth. Sandwiches and light dishes such as tempura of tiger prawns or croque monsieur are also available, while desserts might include chocolate-coated iced nougat with praline and Griottine cherries. France dominates the wine list.
