Freddie's - St. Albans

From the cosy and intimate atmosphere even at full capacity, and considerate service, to the faultless food, Freddie's should not be missed.

Just a few steps from the centre of town, Freddie's hosts all the elements of a delightful dinner aux deux. Perhaps better suited to a romantic meal than friendly or business meals but only because it would be a shame to waste Freddie's on someone you are not trying to impress.

We ordered:

Barbary smoked Duck breast salad with marinated Orange & Grand Marnier jus - smokey and refreshing at the same time.

Lamb Meatballs with Tzatziki - fine textured and flavoursome, converted even a non lamb fan.

Grilled Fillet of Sea Bass with Chablis Cream Sauce, Red peppers, Sauté Potatoes & Vegetables - perfectly light and naturally delicious.

Dover Sole in a creamy Chive and Garlic Sauce (special) - rich without being too heavy.

Chocolate Fudge Cake (special) - sinful but not sickly.

Pinot Griggio delle Venezie IGT - doesn't have the harsh edge of many roses when parred with food. Stayed smooth and enjoyable even when it started to warm up.

One of the few places I would continually go back to. There are enough items on the menu, that I haven't yet tried, to keep me wanting more.
