Spectacular views are to be had from this 24th floor eaterie - this being after you have encountered airport-style security for admittance below. It doubles-up as a popular business venue for lunch and a romantic haunt during the evening.
The kitchen is in the capable hands of Adam Gray who skilfully produces dishes created by Gary Rhodes, many of them updates of traditional 'standards'.
So expect the likes of 'Pork Faggot with Caramelised Apple and Gravy'; 'Warm Smoked Eel, Beetroot Salad and Horseradish Cream'; 'Smoked Salmon Terrine with a Potato and Mustard Seed Salad' to begin. Winter months might also bring 'Cep Mushroom Soup with Pheasant Paté Toasts'.
Perhaps 'Pan-Fried Haddock with a Cockle and Potato Casserole and Steamed Spinach'; 'Roast Monkfish with Tomato, Shrimp and Herb Dressing' or 'Steamed Mutton and Onion Suet Pudding with Buttered Carrots' to follow. Again in autumn and winter months, expect game options, such as 'Saddle of Venison with Sloe Gin Red Cabbage'.
Finish with 'Treacle Tart with Clotted Cream'; 'Warm Chocolate Pudding with Iced Tangerine Parfait and Tangarine Salad' or their excellent selection of British and Irish farm house cheeses.
Service is professional, but can be rather pushy at lunchtime - when the staff probably feel customers have more limited time.
