Timberyard, a vast industrial-chic brick space occupying a former warehouse, is rightly proud of the ingredients used in its menus (of four, six or eight courses). These are sourced from small, local growers, breeders, producers and foragers – and are complemented by a drinks list featuring natural wines and small-batch beers. The beautifully presented seasonal dishes are decorated by own-grown herbs and edible flowers. Well-balanced small plates include cured trout with cucumber, lovage, fennel and crème fraîche; and stunningly fresh raw beef matched by delicate quail’s egg yolk, lightly peppery daikon and buckwheat. Duck breast is smoked with tea, while venison comes as tender loin, shoulder and liver with butter-baked beetroot and ramsons. For dessert, sweet strawberries arrive fresh, dehydrated and as a light mousse, adorned with chewy meringue and buttermilk, and pepped up by honeyed mead. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic staff complete the picture at this exciting city centre dining destination.
