Review on The Farndon
Set in an attractive village on the outskirts of historic Chester, the Farndon is a rather grand-looking, timber-framed building on three floors, with etched windows, gables and a couple of little balconies. It's just up the road from the River Dee, which marks the dividing line between England and Wales.
The restaurant's signature dish is a starter of baked banana with Cheshire blue cheese, grilled local bacon and a 'coed du' cream sauce. You can also expect more fun in the guise of beetroot-smoked salmon with vodka and lime sauce or giant 20-ounce rib steaks on the bone with all the trimmings.
Elsewhere, it's a calmer, eclectic stroll through Thai-spiced crab cakes with chilli dressing, paella and honey-roast duck with thyme, juniper and port sauce served on braised red cabbage, supplemented by desserts such as pear frangipane tart with clotted cream.
