Poplars Restaurant | Bright


When we came to Bright on a holiday 3 years ago, we tried to dine here but they were closed for the season. So, on this trip to Bright, it was a mission for us to dine at Poplars!

Seated next to a warm fireplace, the young & lovely server was attentive and quick to assist us.  We started with a delicious onion & celeriac soup, with a flurry of parsley swimming through it. A star dish!  Shawn had the aged angus eye fillet, with the cafe due Paris butter sauce, frittes and salad. The butter sauce was pure gluttony!  I had the ricotta dumplings with walnut sauce and shaved pear. Although there was nothing wrong with the individual ingredients – the dish as a whole lacked flavor, and even with the addition of seasoning it was lackluster. Either the walnut sauce needs a kick, or the dumplings need a little extra flavor.

Not to be deterred by my main, I soldiered on to have the chocolate souffle for desert. Lovely, light and indulgent – perfectly balanced with home made vanilla ice cream. Will gladly return with the hopes their next vegetarian main will cater to those who like more robust flavors.
