Review on The Harrow at Little Bedwyn
Originally known as the Harrow Inn, this unostentatious Wiltshire hostelry has been impressively transformed by Roger and Sue Jones, who have turned it into a fully-fledged country restaurant famed for its remarkable wine cellar and top-flight, seriously accomplished cooking.
'Real food' sourced from local and specialist producers across the UK forms the backbone of Roger Jones' menu, whether it's Northumberland venison, fish from the Brixham day boats or salt marsh lamb from Harlech. Wild line caught Cornish turbot comes with confit of chicken, morels, truffles & leeks, new season Welsh mountain lamb' appears as a threesome involving rack, fillet and a faggot with Mushy Peas, while line-caught sea bass is paired with salt & pepper spiced lobster, langoustine & squid. Indian influences also crop up in – say – Pembrokeshire Lobster with carrot jus, tarka dhal and coriander chutney, while desserts keep it simple with poached pears or Asian rice pudding with cardamom ice cream. Each dish is flagged with an appropriate recommendation from the Harrow's extraordinary cellar.
Roger Jones' passion for food that has seen him awarded a prestigious Michelin star is certainly matched by his on-going love affair with wine. His stunning 900-bin list, 'the size of a small encyclopaedia', has garnered a fistful of awards including Wine List of the Year from the AA, who described it as 'a list you don't want to put down'. The owners also hold regular tastings and even have their own wine business, Harrow Wine Cellars.
