Square Meal Review of Sheesh at Ye Olde King's Head
With its 600-year-old timbered facade and gussied-up, clashing interiors, Sheesh makes a statement of intent: this is no ordinary Turkish restaurant. The menu may be grounded in native tradition
with the centrepiece charcoal grill bestowing a smoky flavour on aubergines and sweet peppers, skewered lamb or halibut (which comes with an olive butter sauce), but expect a more Mediterranean
feel too. Offerings such as grilled steaks, veal chops, moussaka and kleftiko are popular, while tiramisu and profiteroles appear alongside the sticky Turkish pastries for dessert. With a cocktail
bar and numerous dining areas including a fire-warmed leather lounge, a conservatory and an intimate private nook for courting couples, this has all the hallmarks of a fun experience.
