Review on The Limetree Restaurant at Hartfell House
The much-loved, award-winning Limetree Restaurant recently moved from Moffat's High Street to a new home in Hartfell House - a listed Victorian guest house on the edge of town overlooking the surrounding hills. Matt Seddon remains at the stoves, offering his own brand of contemporary cuisine.
'I cook what I like to eat', is his philosophy. In practice that might mean seasonal starters such as grilled aromatic-spiced pork belly with cucumber salad, soy and coriander or warm goats' cheese bruschetta with Puy lentil dressing, ahead of haunch of Highland venison with celeriac mash, roasted root vegetables and thyme or roast breast and confit leg of Mitchell's chicken with Savoy cabbage, Houston's black pudding and Moffat mustard sauce.
To conclude, there might be coffee and cardamom truffle with apricot compote or Pedro Ximenez frangipane tart in PX syrup with toasted pine nuts - otherwise go for the cheese plate with red wine pear chutney. Wines are sourced through Corney & Barrow and Whighams of Ayr and the short, characterful selection offers plenty of fairly priced drinking to suit the food.
