A Michelin-starred restaurant has re-opened launching a new five-course tasting menu and terrace area.

Northcote in Langho was back yesterday after lockdown and delighted to welcome customers back inside.

Executive chef Lisa Goodwin-Allen and her team have created a menu using British seasonal ingredients.

Lisa said: “Creating this menu was an interesting process, we’re on the cusp of the seasons so there are both spring and summer influences.

"Our previous menu was strong, but we wanted this one to be even better. After such a long time of not being open, we really wanted to deliver a menu that guests remember us for, Britain was our inspiration.

“We used the time we were closed to hone and develop skills and researched produce and suppliers that we had not used before. When we could, we visited the different producers which gave us so many ideas.

"We’re really excited we can now deliver this creativity to guests.”

At the same time, the restaurant has opened its outdoor terrace for lunch.

The new five-course gourmet menu is available Wednesday to Sunday at dinner and lunch service and priced at £95 per person.

It can be paired with course-selected wine by the glass for £62 as well as the addition of The Northcote Cheeseboard for £15 or £20.

Lisa continued: “This menu is all about cooking the ingredients in different ways and being bold with them to ensure that they deliver in quality.

"The asparagus for instance is prepared in two different ways in order to pull out pure flavour.

"The Norfolk poussin is an amazing product which we wanted people to experience, and we have paired it with a black garlic which has liquorice tones to it.

"The Amalfi lemon with the limoncello provides a kick, people aren’t really expecting that, it adds a real summer feel.”
