Lunch at Seasons Restaurant 

I had the pleasure of dining at Seasons at The Mount today as a guest of a friend. I must say that the restaurant was superbly staffed, well priced and had great service. There’s everything from light snacks and sandwiches to proper 3 course meals. 

My friend chose seafood chowder and wheaten whilst I had peppered chicken, rice, sweet corn and coleslaw. We washed it down with still and sparkling water. The portion sizes were ample and my dish tasted amazing-one of the better pepper sauces I’ve had. All I can say is the staff and employees at the Mount are very lucky!!!!

Newly refurbished Rhubarb 

I had a solo Valentines dinner at the newly enlarged and refurbished Rhubarb restaurant. Chef/proprietor Danish and partner Arun had the opportunity to buy the reptile store beside and extend the restaurant into what it is today, a super spot which can fit upto 70 people. Great for intimate dinners or parties!!
There are two entrances one on each side as it’s a corner property, I would suggest here that there should only be one. The pre theatre menu is on during the week, with two courses for £16.95 and three for £19.95, with sides costing £2.95. There is an a la carte at the week end, you can always phone and check.

I went for the two course pre theatre menu and chose soup of the day, which was carrot and coriander. This was served with two slices of warm wheaten with two mini butter packs. The soup portion was big and piping hot. It was extremely tasty with nice tastes of coriander and carrot. It wasn’t bright orange but more light green and creamy…delicious.

James, the trusty waiter from Doncaster, remembered me from my last visit-nice touch. He brought me a bottle of chilled water, which was my tipple of choice. 

For main course I went for the creamy chicken and chorizo penne pasta with a hint of chilli. It wasn’t too creamy, it was well presented and the taste of the chorizo was the main character. Nicely topped off with rocket. I had a side of onion rings (6 in number, most places only give 5 and I’ve recently been somewhere that only served 4!!). Again cooked splendidly, not too oily, the batter was very crisp and seasoned. Not bad for less than £20. Another fabulous point is it’s a BYO. So get down and check it out.
