We find that our savoury main courses are ok without being spectacular, so make sure you leave room for dessert which IS spectacular. The lemon tart contains a slightly runny and well-balanced sweet filling encased a buttery fluted pastry shell. The fruit crumble is just as good, with a light oaty crumble topping stewed berries.
