Having wanted to eat here since it opened a few months ago, I finally managed to sneak an extended lunch hour and meet a friend for a couple of glasses of vino and some good food. The menu is incredibly simple, which I adore and the wine list is really excellent serving wine measures starting from 75ml upwards, enabling you to try many different wines with your meal.
My friend opted for special lunch set menu of 2 courses at £15.50 which produced fantastic value starting with a salad of yellow and red beetroot, generously scattered with goat's cheese and crushed pistachios; followed by a main course of pan-fried mackerel accompanied by artichokes and a caper dressing. I was genuinely impressed with the quality and value of the food on the set menu.
My own choices did not cost that much more with a wonderful duck rillette to start, delicate in flavour with succulent shreds of confit'd duck and a selection of pickles with huge hunks of bread. Heavenly. My main course was even more sublime, pigs cheek with belly pork, a side of crackling, quince, cale and swede that looked like spaghetti. A wonderful, sweet jus topped the dish off and made the experience absolutely perfect. I will most definitely be going back, preferably in the evening when I can really enjoy the wine list fully!
