Square Meal Review of Orwells ?

Named after George Orwell, who spend his childhood in the area, this “fabulous local restaurant” has been painstakingly realised by the dynamic duo of Ryan Simpson and Liam Trotman. Well-bred pubby charms, good looks and reasonable prices belie a defiantly British menu and “utterly stunning” food based on locally sourced ingredients, foraged pickings, home-grown vegetables and honey from the owners’ hives. The kitchen works hard, fashioning picture-perfect plates of confit sea trout with fennel, vanilla, samphire and smoked herring roe or lamb rump with roast asparagus, nettle, pearl barley and tomato, followed by pink praline tart with sorrel sorbet or lemon curd with passion fruit, chocolate and hazelnuts. A separate menu of ‘pub classics’ such as fish and chips or sticky toffee pudding pleases the traditionalists, while superb staff ensure that everyone is “tended with warmth, wit and care”.
