Restaurants we like – The Devonshire, Inn On The Lake, Wellington

I talked about the Devonshire in my earlier post about the “Suites-on-the-Lake“, and as you may recall, we went for dinner at the Devonshire that night.
The Devonshire is actually an eight room country inn with an elegant, licensed restaurant. It is located on a waterfront property in the village of Wellington, Prince Edward County, with a magnificent view over Lake Ontario. It was once the “Wellington Foundry” and the inn’s two acres of park-like grounds feature a pebbly beach, a trout stream, and a waterfall.
The Devonshire patioIt was a beautiful, warm summer evening and so we decided to enjoy dinner on the terrace overlooking the lake.
Browsing the dinner menu we decided to head straight for the mains. Since we alredy had a bit of an “appero” courtesy Suites-on-the-Lake, we didn’t feel we had room for more than that. Julie decided on the “Angus Ribeye” while I opted for the “Roast Loin of Pork”. To accompany the selections we ordered a half liter of Shiraz (Hardy, Bankside).
The Ribeye, prepared with grilled asparagus and spring onion, sweet potato frites and stilton cream, garnered “best I ever had” from Julie and the Roast Loin of Pork, stuffed with spring onion, garden peas, and seasoned brioche crumbs with a pan roast reduction, smashed potatoes and asparagus was simply outstanding.
The sun eventually began to set and as the skies darkened, candles arrived and all in all, the evening turned out to be one of the more romantic
ones in a long time.
The service staff was very friendly and efficient, the food was great and the wine was, well, OK. (Some people who know me are probably wondering why I would order anything Hardy – inside joke).
In conclusion, I’d say if you are going to be in the area and dinner is calling your name, head down to the Devonshire. You will not leave disappointed.
