Spoil is apparently best known for its desserts. At least that’s the official source of its gently chiding name. But what we enjoyed more than anything was having our own solitary, spacious picnic table outside. As for the dishes, the avocado and mango salad with prawn, mushroom risotto with foie gras, rigatoni with pancetta ham, and pork chop all went down well with an interesting Chenin Blanc from China (stop sneering). For the much-hyped dessert we shared a four-layered slice of carrot cake—good in its own right, but far from the highlight of the evening. They don’t accept credit cards, so bring plenty of cash.
