A good restaurant, offering a menu of updated British dishes, in a refreshing style using carefully sourced seasonal produce. It's so named as being the year of the building's construction.
Experienced chef/co-proprietor has a good eye for detail, and dishes generally deliver more than their simple menu description would lead you to anticipate.
An early summer example listed 'New Seasons Asparagus with Poached Egg & Hollandaise Sauce'; 'Chicken Liver Paté with Chutney & Sultana Bread' and 'Rabbit & Black Pudding Terrine with Pickled Carrot' among the starters.
'Lincolnshire Poacher Tart with Seasonal Salad'; 'Fish & Chips with Crushed Peas'; 'Rump Steak with Green & Pink Peppercorn Sauce & Beef Dripping Chips' and 'Lamb Chump, Garlic-Flavoured Mashed Potatoes, Caramelised Baby Onions & Redcurrants' listed among the mains.
Expect the likes of 'Chocolate Puddle Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream' and 'Lemon Tart with Raspberry Sauce' among the desserts.
Service is both professional & friendly.
