Find this brasserie-style restaurant/bar & hotel in a tastefully refurbished building in the centre of town
The dining room resembles something you might see on TV's 'Restoration' - being a mix of old barn & industrial-style modern girders. The whole works very well, once you mentally block out the yellowy chairs.
A seasonally changing menu is backed up by blackboard 'specials' - but starters such as 'Peppered Squid with Lime & Chili Sauce'; 'Twice-Baked Local Cheese Soufflé with Spring Onions & Cornichons' and 'Caesar Salad' (with or without chicken) set the style.
With perhaps 'An 8oz Beef Burger with Wykes Cheddar, Bacon & Hand-Cut Chips'; 'Confit Leg of Gressingham Duck, Dauphinoise Potatoes & Seasonal Greens'; 'Fish & Chips with Mushy Peas' and 'Pan-Fried Halloumi with Roast Red Onion, Peppers & Crispy Hen's Egg' to follow.
Puds, such as 'Citrus Posset with Candied Lime & Lemon Segments' and 'Sticky Toffee Pudding' complete the picture.
Service is both friendly and professional.
Their Bar, or rear terrace, makes a handy place to meet friends - whilst perhaps having a snack or lighter meal.
