Find this good neighbourhood restaurant in what was previously a drapers shop.
They describe their cooking as Anglo-French, but the main aim of the kitchen is to offer a menu of for-ever-changing seasonal food, honestly produced - without too many trimmings.
Starters such as 'Line Caught Cod with Puy Lentils & Curry Oil'; 'Sprouting Broccoli with Poached Free-Range Egg & Hollandaise Sauce' & 'Partridge Breast with Fondant Beetroot, Red Wine & Partridge Juices' taken from an autumn men, set the style.
'Beetroot & Blue Cheese Tart'; 'Line-Caught Skate with Caper Sauce'; 'Rib-Eye Steak with Black Pudding, Mash & Onion Gravy' and 'Slow-Roast Shoulder of Lamb with Colcannon & Rosemary Gravy' were listed among the mains.
Puds such as 'Treacle Tart'; 'Chocolate Tart with Orange Ice Cream' and 'Red-Wine-Poached Pears with Hazelnut Meringue & Green Tea Ice Cream' might be too hard to resist.
They offer monthly bread making lessons, for which we have heard good reports.
