Review on Russell's
Billed as 'a boutique restaurant-with-rooms' in the heart of touristy Broadway, Russell's is the brainchild of experienced hoteliers Barry Hancox and Andrew Riley. They spotted the potential of a derelict building in the village (once the headquarters of world-famous furniture designer, Gordon Russell), set about restoring the place, named it in honour of the man himself and opened to great acclaim in 2004. The contemporary restaurant occupies the ground floor of the building, with a terrace tacked on for soaking up the sunshine and al fresco dining during the summer.
Heading the kitchen is Neil Clarke, who has introduced a daily-changing menu of modern British dishes that is delighting diners. Look for grilled Cornish sardines, tomato, fennel and chilli sauce or confit duck terrine, macadamia and pistachio nuts, duck liver parfait served with brioche amongst the starters. Main courses embrace roast saddle of rabbit, confit shoulder, Spring vegetables and rosemary gnocchi or Cornish pollock, olive oil braised cuttlefish, smoked bacon butter beans and parsley. The choice of desserts could run to a passion fruit souffle paired with honey and ginger ice cream or maybe apple Tarte Tatin with creme fraiche. There is also a great value fixed price lunch on offer, with their popular roast lunch on Sundays.
