What's the word on The Cooper Beech Inn?
My wife and I stayed there and ate dinner in their restaurant about five years ago. It was good, but seemed on its way out. I thought I heard a year ago, or so, that a new Executive Chef has revamped the menu. Can anyone confirm or deny? Any other suggestions for this coming weekend? Thanks.
The main dining room still has a formal menu featuring local ingredients. Actually I think the best bet is their Brasserie Pip, a separate more casual room overlooking the garden. It has many small plates including a daily charcuterie selection in addition to a set of entrees ranging from a "royale" burger through trout almandine, seared scallops and steak frites. I also liked the macaroni gratin and the chocolate mousse cake. You can check out both menus at
