Knutsford is such a traditional, beautiful destination, that an invitation to eat lunch there, was all the encouragement we needed. We decided casting our eyes over one or two superior interior design emporiums would be part of the fun.
The restaurant is located in the Old Town Hall and definitely has the wow factor. There is surrounding lush woodland. On a beautiful sunshiny day, the outside, seating, covered with an awning, looked tempting, but we ventured inside. The Victorian-inspired, avant-garde cocktail bar takes pride of place. The menu offers beautifully crafted cocktails, ‘bottomless brunch and bubbles’, delicious seasonal dishes and afternoon tea. We were feeling right at home already. It is an impressive, listed building, with gorgeous ‘church’ arched windows, with sunlight streaming in at lunch time. We found elegant partition seating, with marble top table. Families are welcome, and there are larger tables and high chairs to accommodate toddlers. There is a menu that would appeal to children, and possibly some adults too.
The Lost & Found serves a generous selection of seasonal food, alongside traditional cocktails and twists on the classic favourites. The range of options on pizza toppings means it could take a while to decide. From classic Margherita to goat’s cheese, to Mediterranean to Ibérico chorizo; all at your fingertips. The staff are friendly, helpful and very efficient. Thank you Morgan for brilliant service.
I chose the coconut, sweet potato and butternut squash curry with sticky jasmine rice and coriander. The ever so slight gripe might be that the lemon grass was a little tough. Otherwise delicious. All my favourites in one dish: the coconut blended perfectly with the butternut squash. A match made in heaven. Jasmine added a little kick, and in combination with the coriander, it transformed the sticky rice.
I spotted Eton Mess on the desserts menu. There were shafts of meringue with a delicate scooped shape of white chocolate and delicious, sweet luscious raspberries. All a glorious confusion of desirables. We walked in the direction of Tatton, did a little window shopping and had a great day.
