Originally a cinema, this is now a smart Art Deco restaurant, with an impressive double staircase from which to make your entrance. The menu offered is brasserie in style, but the food is cooked to a high standard.
Starters such as 'Confit of Duck Leg on a Leek Tarte Tatin'; 'Seared Scallops with Crispy Potato and Lentils in a Mustard and Chive Sauce' and ' Pressed Carrot and Beetroot Terrine with Piccalilli' set the style.
With maybe 'Honey, Thyme and Black Pepper Fillet of Pork'; 'Fillet of Salmon wrapped in Parma Ham' and 'Whole Red Pepper Stuffed with Braised Rice and a Pistachio and Herb Crust' among the mains.
If you have room, finish with the likes of 'Sticky Toffee Pudding' or 'Baked Kirsch and Vanilla Cheesecake. Or for the more savoury-toothed their selection Of farmhouse cheeses.
They have live jazz on Monday evenings.
