Tasting menu in Bath

Menu Gordon Jones is a fairly extraordinary little restaurant in the Bear Flat area of Bath. Just four tables within chatting distance of the tiny kitchen where Gordon Jones, a young Scot, turns out six-course tasting menus for £40. He uses local, well-sourced ingredients and the cooking is assured and unusual. Some of the highlights were a starter of rabbit rillettes and perfect asparagus with a scrambled pheasants egg in the shell. A sweetcorn sorbet had an intriguing taste. The chef's take on roast chicken dinner included new season garlic, a carrot which though infantine actually tasted of carrot and a garlicky, chickeny mash.

The food looks pretty too.

My only criticism would be slightly too many ingredients per dish,but the flavours are well chosen. All in all it's a very un-poncey and delightful experience.
