This is the last of my back-logged updates from my meals prior to our trip to the South East. Our meal at Alyn Williams was completely unplanned, so much so that our last minute booking via OpenTable was not received by the restaurant. Thankfully, despite the small hiccup they had plenty of spare tables available on a cold Thursday night. It really is a shame that despite holding a Michelin star and being very fairly priced, the restaurant remains pretty quiet particularly during midweek.
The menu format during weekday dinners features a small a la carte menu (3 options each) as well as 2 tasting menus (a regular tasting menu and a vegetarian tasting menu). The kitchen is pretty flexible however and if you fancied a dish on the tasting menu which is not featured on the a la carte or vice versa, they are more than happy to make the swaps. On the day when we visited, they also featured a white truffle special. We opted for the regular tasting menu but as my fiancee is not a big fan of foie gras, they kindly swapped it for an alternative vegetarian dish of her choice. We also could not resist adding on the daily special.
