Respond to Review of Terre a Terre
Review: Last night was exceptional - see my photos - the Cheddar Gorge was the best-presented meal I have ever eaten. My visit four months prior was the worst I'd ever had there - which was still OK, just not worth the money - and I feared they'd finally lost it. But not so - yesterday was probably the best visit there ever, with a new menu removing some of the more outrageous cons such as the olives and seeds and nuts for Â£12 (though the cocktails are still expensive and relentlessly disappointing - they could do with a cocktail coach). I've been perhaps 20 times over the years, since the days when they sold chips arranged like the game of Jenga in the branch around the corner, and it's a highlight of a trip to Brighton. The tapas starter is usually excellent, bear in mind it often contains portions of the main courses on the menu so you might end up repeating yourself, but that's OK. And the new chocoholic dessert was frankly unbelievable. You really could have it to yourself, for Â£12 - but sharing was fine too. Perhaps order an extra portion of the chocolate and hazelnut tart with salt caramel glaze - it was so good that upon hitting my tongue I did for the first time in memory let out an involuntary squeal.
