Review on Shaun Dickens at the Boathouse

The launch of Shaun Dickens at The Boathouse on 11th April 2013 has set the hearts of foodies racing with its modern British menu, set on the riverside at Henley-on-Thames, near the bridge crossing the Thames and just around the corner from the train station and the Rowing & River Museum. The restaurant, like the food has a modern setting with a fabulous decked area where you can watch all the action on the water.

The fine dining restaurant is Shaun's first solo venture having trained under Raymond Blanc for three years at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, followed by two years working at three Michelin starred Per Se in New York and also at Alan Murchison's Michelin starred L'Ortolan. More recently he was Head Chef and Farm Manager at Fallowfields Country House in Kingston Bagpuize, Oxfordshire, where he achieved 2 AA rosettes within six months. This talented
and driven chef is producing elegant dishes with an eye for creativity, using impeccably sourced ingredients from trusted local suppliers.

From the a la carte menu choose confit Lock Duart salmon, roasted beets, beetroot spaghetti and horseradish sorbet or maybe pan roasted foie gras, poached rhubarb, honeyed oats and sorrel. Main courses follow the theme with slow roasted Loomswood farm duck breast, Heritage carrot, endive, ratte potato, star anise or pan fried stone bass, confit cuttle fish, basil puree and squid ink tortellini. Desserts put on a breathtaking show with banana and lime, toasted coconut, banana cake, lime puree paired with banana ice cream or coffee and amaretto, chocolate coffee bean, white coffee ice cream and amaretti.

There is an excellent selection of wines selected by their experienced sommelier who will be happy to guide you through the menu.
