Originally just plain old Bell’s Diner, this funky boho veteran has been given a lift following the arrival of new owners and a chef from the Flinty Red wine bar on Cotham Hill. There’s a touch more informality about the place now, with vintage curios strewn about the three eating and drinking rooms, plus a bright menu of eclectic small plates with a strong Mediterranean and North African tilt. Expect full-on flavours, a freewheeling approach and lots of on-trend artisan ingredients – think peas in their pods with salchichon Ibérico and Manchego followed by roast onion, pepper, lentil and cumin salad or fiery char-grilled chicken pinchos marinated in chipotle chilli with harissa yoghurt. After that, how about lemon meringue tart with a shot of orange Armagnac? To drink, British craft beers sit alongside terrific wines from sunnier climes with modest cash mark-ups.
