Dolphin House Brasserie – Venison Martin



The venison dish was very neatly presented. The consommé had a wonderful flavour and finished to a very high standard. Flavour combination went really well.

Venison itself was cooked to perfection, texture excellent and the ash was not over powering, just right.

A very good dish well cooked and presented.

How would you improve the dish;

The game chips went soggy straight away. Perhaps they could be placed on top of the venison.
