The Orchard in Newport is the perfect dining experience; where hosts Peter and Sarah Robert serve the perfect food and drink at terrifically affordable prices. The food is fresh and vibrant, the service is friendly and the whole restaurant has a calm atmosphere - which makes for a relaxing and enjoyable experience that you will want to remember and recommend.
This family run restaurant is everything I hope for from a dining out: they use quality locally sourced produce, seasonally changing menus, with both classic and contemporary dishes, and a desirable and carefully chosen wine list to accompany your meal. It’s so exciting to discover a real gastro experience in the heart of Newport.
Now before you are already out of the door to visit this glorious restaurant, here's what a typical meal looks like from their spring menu. Plait of butchers sausage meat, black pudding and egg served with pear and apple chutney (£7.65) is a deliciously filling starter, and followed by a Trio of spring lamb cutlets with a rosemary and red currant jus with spring buttered new potatoes. In short I'm in meat heaven!
That would be one perfect meal. Here's another: Pear, fig & caramelised red onion tart served with fruit compote (£5.25), a happy marriage of colours, flavours and textures; Spiced squash and sweet potato bake Slow cooked with caramelised onion, lentils, tomato, orange, cream and coriander (£12.50) or Fillet of seabass with Parma ham with sautéed artichoke and watercress salad (£15.95). The mouth-watering meals are simply a delight.
Then there's Vanilla panacotta with rhubarb and ginger compote (£5.75) for dessert; and Caramelised apple and cinnamon sponge pudding with crème Anglais (£5.75), which sets your taste buds alight!
Peter and Sarah’s decade of experience in hospitality really shines through; as does their love of Shropshire. They can cater for romantic meals, family gatherings or larger parties.
