Review on Earle by Simon Rimmer

Celeb chef Simon Rimmer (best known for Greens vegetarian restaurant in West Didsbury) now has a second venue under his belt. He recently teamed up with former Ireland and Tranmere Rovers footballer Jason McAteer to open Earle in the Cheshire town of Hale.

The interior comprises a stylish, split-level dining room, which has been kitted out in understated contemporary style with exposed brickwork, mirrors and a spiral staircase. Earle isn't vegetarian; instead it offers wide-ranging modern food at very reasonable prices with the emphasis on North Country produce.

Cheshire smoked venison might be served with Cumberland sauce and pickles, best end of Jim Curwen's Cumbrian lamb could appear with Parmesan-crusted beans, crème fraîche, paprika and spinach, while 28-day aged Vale of Bowland fillet steak gets the char-grill treatment. Elsewhere, the kitchen delivers salmon fishcakes with mushy pea and mint purée, sea bass fillet with potato rösti and salsa, plus a raft of desserts including warm apple cake with cinnamon cream and sticky toffee pudding.

Cheeses are true to the region, and drinkers won't be disappointed by the impressive, wide-ranging wine list. Fixed-price, early evening menus are available 5.30 – 6.45pm Mon-Fri.
