Staying at the Drayton Court Hotel having had a great starter for my evening meal, it was then onto the main course.
I had ordered the Crispy Gressingham duck leg, which was served with a bacon, sausage and bean cassoulet.
It was supposed to come with a parsley crumb I think, but there was crispy kale instead.
I had had a really nice duck cassoulet at Côte Brasserie at the end of last year, so it wasn’t too surprising that I compared the two dishes as I tucked into the cassoulet from the Drayton Court Hotel. The duck was tender, but I do think the skin onto could have been crispier. The cassoulet though was rather good, filled with bacon, sausages and beans. I also enjoyed the crispy kale that garnished the dish.
Overall I think both dishes were great, I preferred the duck at Côte, and it was difficult to choose between the cassoulets, but Drayton Court had the edge.
