‘Perfect for those little romantic nights or deep catch-ups’, this determinedly quaint, candlelit bistro inspires dreamy canoodling with its snug feel and arty trappings – all dark walls, mismatched furniture and exceedingly cramped tables topped with posies of flowers. Set over two tiny floors, it deals in ‘enormous portions’ of rough-hewn seasonal food with the odd creative flourish – from chilled beetroot and orange soup or venison carpaccio with English cherries, rocket and soured cream to spicy Italian-sausage stew or melting lamb shank with thick, rich gravy. The results have been dubbed ‘sublime’, and everything is delivered by ‘extremely knowledgeable and attentive’ staff, with back-up from a thoughtfully assembled wine list stuffed with terrific bargains and bin-ends. Just make sure you can secure a table via the democratic but frustrating week-by-week reservation system.
