Havercroft's is a cornerstone of Stanford and the perfect place for any special occasion or just a long, relaxing weekend lunch. The menu is mouth-watering and exquisitely well balanced. Brydon is an absolute whiz in the kitchen (the Chicken Ballotine is my all-time favourite, though the fish curry has won my heart over lately). But the star attraction in this little gem of a restaurant is the Mistress of Ceremonies, Innes. Her recital of the menu is worth a booking by itself, and her witty banter throughout the service is full-on entertainment.
Patio seating is divine and the view breathtaking. Plan to stay most of the afternoon, bring friends, and let Innes tell you which local wines are the best. Then prepare to be dazzled and delighted, your tastebuds wooed, and your deepest foodie cravings fully satisfied. As Innes says once you've placed your order, 'That's it!'
