St Andrews Gourmet Evening
  10 / 10
It?s the morning after the St Andrews Gourmet Evening at The Gate at Llanfrechfa Mon, and what a brilliant evening it was.
The Gate has recently re-opened under the management of Julie and James Dawson previously of The Golden Lion at Magor.
The Gate has been redecorated to a very high standard and includes a baby grand piano in the restaurant.
We have already enjoyed several delicious restaurant meals as well as fabulous Sunday Lunches but these were surpassed by the Gourmet evening yesterday.
The meal consisted of a six course dinner with 5 different wines. With many of the courses there was a choice ie Scots Rossini or Whole Roast Grouse. The Scots Rossini was a Scottish take on a traditional Tornados Rossini and was topped with Lorne sausage and sat on a Tattie Scone. Absolutely superb. Other courses included Haggis Tartlet and Poached Salmon and Sole.
With Sorbet , Cheese and Clootie Dumpling or Cranachan the meal would have done justice to a Michelin Stared Restaurant.
The wines were equally as good ranging from a Vacqueyras Beaumirail 2010 To a Bacalhoa Vinhos de Portugal Dessert wine.
I understand the next Gourmet Evening will be Burns night. I cant wait!
However I would thoroughly recommend The Gate for evening meals Sunday Lunches and even Bar snacks. It really is a gastronomic pearl in Monmouthshire
