Found on George Street, Fettle is a cutesy café and restaurant. The intimate space features bare wooden floors, a wood panelled bar and hanging black pendant lighting. The restaurant is given a few pops of colour via tub chairs wrapped in patterned fabrics, while you will also find a few brightly coloured seats on the street-side terrace.
Fettle is open all day, kicking things off with breakfast. Head here in the early hours to start your day with the likes of mushrooms on pumpernickel rye toast or rice porridge topped with seasonal fruit preserve. The same menu is available for weekday and weekend brunch (served until 4pm), when you are better off making use of the more indulgent dishes, such as slow-roasted pork belly benedict or mushroom gnocchi with pumpkin seed cream and walnut pesto.
You can add a sweet touch to your brunch with desserts such as apple crumble with oat custard or Frangelico affogato. Looking to make things boozy? Fettle also offers classic cocktails including Bloody Marys and Gin & Tonics, while you can also treat yourself to a glass or two of Prosecco.
Fettle’s evening à la carte changes with the seasons, but offers diners a two-course meal for under £25 (you can have three courses if you feel like it though). You can begin with starters such as pig cheek with beer and honey or scallops served with black pudding and Jerusalem artichoke. For your main course, you can choose between the likes of homemade fish pie or truffle and artichoke tortellini, while vegetarians can order roast beetroot with green lentils.
To finish up, you can enjoy classic desserts including crème brulee or the less conventional likes of artichoke caramel with rye, walnut and oat custard. Pair your dessert with a selection of European wines, as well as beers and ciders.
