The four course menu at Bistrot de Luxe, which is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary, will include Scottish Girolles, fried duck egg with smoked Montgomery’s cheddar and Classic Roast Grouse with game chips, watercress, game crouton, bread sauce and jus. The dinner will be helps in their private dining room, Le Cellar.

Of the dishes, owner Jeff Galvin says’We will be serving this dish from the 19th August after the grouse have been hung for a week.  In the past we have had fun (and stress) racing the birds down on the 12th, tracking them from the moor to the kitchen for waiting guests.  Game is a wonderful wild product that tastes like nothing else. It is always varied with different flavour notes which invites exciting wine pairings.We love the 12th ! It is the day that heralds the beginning of the game season as thoughts turn to Autumn’
