Although Shapes has been open since the end of 2001, its unfashionable location doesn't equate with good food & it is still off the popular radar. That’s a pity, because it’s a terrific place to eat. It may look like a green shed or a motorway diner (it’s actually part of a furniture & auction business), but the interior is an eclectic riot of expensive fixtures & fittings that shouldn't work but somehow does. Meanwhile, the food is equal to the setting. A full lunch might bring chicken liver parfait to start, perfect roast hake with pesto crust & red pepper risotto as a main, & crème brûlée for dessert. Lighter options include soups & salads, the wine list has a fair choice, & service is right on the button. Anyone can turn up to eat during the day, but it’s members only for special dinners on Friday & Saturday.
