Find this good neighbourhood restaurant in what was the towns fire station. Indeed, the original bell is still hanging outside. The interior walls, including intricate plasterwork and old timbers, has been carefully restored, but the modern furnishing dont seem out of place.
Chef/proprietor Stephen Waites uses carefully sourced ingredients, and his menus follow the seasons offering four choices at each stage.
These might include the likes of Salad of Brixham Crab and Prawns with Gazpacho Sauce; Thai-Style Fish Cake with Coriander Crème Fraiche and Open Raviolo of Roast Vegetables and Confit Garlic in a Tomato and Basil Sauce among the starters.
Perhaps Breast of Corn Fed Duck with Braised White Cabbage, Rosti Potato and Celeriac Purée; Oven-Baked Trout with Brie and Almonds, New Potatoes and Tomato Salad and Venison, Casseroled with Prunes and Tomatoes among the mains.
Finish with Chocolate and Walnut Tart with Coffee Ice Cream and Caramelised Walnuts; Warm Pear and Almond Fanancier with Amaretto Cream or Lime and Coconut Parfait with Mango Sorbet.
Friendly, professional service.
