This converted and renovated warehouse now houses a good brasserie-style restaurant offering carefully-cooked seasonal food and a menu that changes a little each day.
An autumn snapshot brought 'Risotto of Red Wine Pear with Gorgonzola, Pinenuts, Thyme & Parmesan'; 'Scallops with Alsace Bacon, Peas, Parsley & Lemon'; 'Char-Grilled Squid with Mango, Citrus & Spring Onion Salad and Chili & Coriander Dressing' and 'Seared Lamb Loin with Potato, Shallot & Green Bean Salad, Rocket Pesto & Rosemary Jus' among the evening starters.
'Roast Supreme of Free-Range Chicken with Crispy Noodles, Asian Greens, Coriander, Chili & Satay Sauce'; 'Grilled & Spiced Fillet of Hake, with Char-Grilled Prawns, Saffron Potatoes, Shitake Mushrooms, Baby Aubergines, Ginger, Lemongrass & Coconut Emulsion'; 'Roast Haunch & Civet of Venison with Roast Potatoes, Green Beans, Wild Mushrooms and Red Wine & Thyme Jus' and 'Pappardelle with Wild Mushrooms, Café au Lait, Parmesan & Pine Nuts' listed among the mains.
Lunch brings a wide selection in a similar - but slightly simpler - vein; but te choice is large, as many dishes are offered in either starter or main sized helpings.
Desserts such as 'Vanilla Crème Brulée & Sablé Biscuit with a Plum & Ginger Compote'; 'Walnut Tart with Valrhona Chocolate Ice Cream & Crème Anglaise' and 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce & Jersey Milk Ice Cream' set the style if you still have room.
