Find this excellent brasserie-type restaurant/wine bar with comfortable bedrooms, in a Georgian house in the centre of town.
During the day, it's ideal for meeting friends for a cup of coffee or a snack perhaps a Char-Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad or Bowl of Homemade Soup; or eat more seriously from their à la carte menu. The kitchen follows tradition, rather than taking shortcuts, in a way not always encountered in restaurants with modest ambitions - the making of proper stocks, for example.
This lists the likes of 'Home-Cured Salmon & Smoked Salmon Platter with Dill & Mustard Dressing'; 'Goats' Cheese Tartlet with Red Onion Marmalade'; 'Spice Pear with Roquefort Cheese & Tasted Hazelnuts' and ''Wild Mushroom Risotto with Tarragon Oil' among the starters.
Perhaps 'Slow-Roast Belly Pork stuffed with Black Pudding and served with Apple Purée, Savoy Cabbage & Sage Mash' (coming with an excellently-sticky and delicious jus on one inspection); 'Pan-Fried Sea Bass with Sauté Potatoes, Braised Fennel & Cockle Butter Sauce'; 'Rib-Eye Steak with Deep-Fried Onion Rings, Mushrooms & Homemade Chips' plus traditional Fish & Chips and their own Beefburger among the mains.
If you just fancy a pud with your coffee, or still have room after eating, you might be tempted by 'Stem Ginger Pudding with Ginger Sauce'; 'Rich Chocolate & Pecan Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream'; 'Spiced Apple Slice Crumble Slice with Cinnamon Ice Cream' - or an excellent home-made Cheesecake.
Lunchtime brings the addition of an interesting variety of freshly-cut sandwiches; while their secluded garden is and added bonus in warmer weather when during certain months, you might be able to try their home-made Elderflower cordial.
Friendly and helpful service.
