Friendly, smiley and chatty staff, all with good English. Some of whom even were English. So not a bad start for any restaurant these days. Predictable menu executed pretty well, there is a steady hand in the kitchen. Proper, tasty homemade burger, and steak of decent quality, and well-presented. Top-notch Bearnaise. Braised lamb shoulder with borlotti beans looked good but braised means the meat should pretty much fall apart; perhaps this was not cooked for long enough. Some of the prices are a tad too high – £8 for a a few small slivers of salmon carpaccio (advertised as “raw salmon with soy and ginger” so was rather expecting sashimi-style tranches, so disappointing – but nice fish) – and £17-odd for a small rib-eye steak (which ought to be an oxymoron). The bar is good for cocktails, which were well-made and reasonably priced. The wine list is OK, if lacking some inspiration, and prices not bad. Only one bottled real ale which is a shame (albeit much better than none!). Tables for two are a bit small, and a number are too close together, but otherwise, and overall, they have made this modern, brasserie-style space an attractive place to spend time, and I would recommend it.
