On the site of the old Winkles Restaurant, this is a welcome addition to the area, offering great eclectic food at a reasonable price. Owned and run by a family trio with dad up front and the sons in the kitchen, there is a really relaxed and easy atmosphere here, with no rush to leave and no heirs and graces to worry about. The food changes almost weekly on a short menu and is always fantastically executed. On a Sunday they will do a roast for £10.50 a head so a vertiable bargain, as well as the a la carte if that's not your thing.
The only thing is the wine. The list doesn't have enough particularly good wine and sometimes it feels a bit steep for what you are getting – a Matteus Rose at £14.50 is the worst offender! And the white by the glass is never cold enough. However, these are small niggles for an overall great experience. It has definitely upped the local game and I hope they stay open. Particularly as they are only across the street from my house!
