Food at Little’s Restaurant is never run-of-the-mill, and no more so than Valentine’s Day, when chef proprietor Willie Little, and his talented team, have pulled out all the stops to create the new menu.

To begin diners will be served a glass of sparkling wine, and will enjoy a choice of starter options including shelled Langoustines on a skewer with pineapple and chilli salsa.

Alternatively pigeon breast will be served on a bed of brown lentils, with port wine gravy, or there is a delicate seafood crêpe glazed with hollandaise sauce, or marinated fruits with warm honey.

It is said that oysters are the food of love, so two delicious oysters served with or without spice, and accompanied by a citrus sorbet also feature.

Main courses include monkfish rolled in coconut flakes, served with asparagus risotto and crisp Parma ham, or a grilled sirloin steak garni, with hand cut chips.

Vegetarians are well catered for with a Gateau of aubergine and oven dried tomatoes, with dauphinoise potatoes and creamy mushroom sauce.

To finish the meal there is pecan pie with vanilla ice cream, or passionfruit soufflé with a hot chocolate sauce – a truly romantic dessert.

Willie Little said: “We love to lay on special menus for significant days and have put a great deal of care and attention into this romantic Valentine’s Day menu.

“Come along to Little’s to celebrate – we have the romantic ambience and atmosphere that you’re looking for in our stunning converted church. It really comes into its own in the evening with our beautiful stainglass windows and soft lighting. Make sure you book soon to get a table!”

Little’s has also announced that it’s holding a special dinner dance on Friday 23 February at 7pm.

Willie said: “We thought we’d bring back old-fashioned dinner dances which used to be all the rage in the 1970s.

“We’ve done some customer research, and many of our customers want to see the return of such an event to liven up a cold winter evening. We hope it will be a big success.”
