Classic main courses

Tournedos Rossini* - £29.80


A 19th Century recipe created by French chefs in honour of the Italian composer Rossini, a reputed gourmet.

A 28-day aged fillet of Welsh beef, toast, pâté and truffle, a classic Madeira sauce (demi-glace). Served with chips and green beans.


*This fillet steak may be ordered: blue (50°C core temperature), rare (55°C core temperature), medium (60°C core temperature), or well done (65°C+ core temperature). The individual colour, as well as the exceptional flavour and texture of this steak, are influenced by the high quality and provenance of the meat which has not been artificially treated to maintain a red colour, the length of time for which it has been aged, etc. You can tell the stage of cooking by the consistency (“viscosité”) of the steak – the bouncier the steak, the more juice has been retained. In addition, because the steak is pan-fried as opposed to grilled, the outer layers will be well done even in rare and blue orders.


Grillon de porc - £10.80


Slow-cooked belly of pork with mashed potatoes

Bavette, échalottes - £10.80


A typical French cut of steak, pan-fried and served with a shallot jus, chips and salad This minute-style steak has been described as ‘tenderly chewy’ and, for this reason, it is cooked by French chefs for as short a time as possible. We

recommend that it is cooked medium (to maintain maximum tenderness) or rare.


Side orders - £3.00

Additional orders for green beans, sugar snaps, mange tout or chips can be placed at the time the main course is ordered.


We do not accept requests for substitution (“chips instead”, for instance, although they may be ordered as an additional

side). Sauté potatoes and dauphinois are not available as side orders since they are prepared

before each service as set accompaniments.
