Greasy spoon by day, beguiling North African restaurant by night, Adam’s has been picking up plaudits for nigh-on 20 years. Breakfast has a strong following, while lunch involves budget-priced dishes such as sausage and mash, or lamb chops. However, it’s the Tunisian and Moroccan dinners that draw the crowds, when tablecloths and mood lighting help transform the spot from café to cosy bistro. Sardines with chermoula sauce might kick off a meal, followed by mains of kebabs, tagines, or various spicy couscous dishes, with a choice of French and Middle Eastern desserts as a finale. The venue is fully licensed, but take your own wine (£3 corkage) and the evening will set you back less than £20 – although you’ll want to leave a big tip for the delightful service.
