Review on Sir Charles Napier
Sir Charles Napier restaurant is set in an attractive flint building in a little hillside hamlet above the village of Chinnor in the Chiltern Hills. This delightful award winning restaurant, the recipient of a Michelin star in 2012, has a cosy atmosphere with its open fire, comfy settees and Michael Cooper sculptures of gorillas and lions adding a quirky touch.
The kitchen delivers a seasonal menu that showcases many local ingredients as in wild mushroom risotto or Cornish crab with celeriac remoulade, avocado and crisp apple salad amongst the starters. Mains could feature roast pheasant from a local shoot, served with braised puy lentils and salsify or thyme roasted wild sea bass with ratte potatoes and orange braised endive. Tempting desserts bring proceedings to a close with warm pear and lime sponge with bramble compote and vanilla ice cream or a sticky toffee brioche pudding with caramelized banana and jersey ice cream. The wine list is a joy with modestly priced house wines alongside top-end treasures. Sir Charles Napier is well known for its beautiful gardens with its collection of sculptures and there is no better place to sit on sunny days than their wisteria clad terrace.
