A deservedly-popular bistro & piano bar where good food is combined with a buzzy/fun atmosphere.
All changes a little week by week, but a typical autumn menu brought 'Roast Pumpkin Soup with Indian Spices'; 'Bacon & Black Pudding Salad with Fried Potato Slices, Mushrooms & Poched Egg' and 'Carpaccio of Duck with Caesar Salad, Parmesan, Baby Tomatoes, Olives & Pickles' amongst the starters.
Followed by 'Tikka-Marinated Breast of Chicken with Braised Rice, Buttered Greens and Tomato & Coriander Chutney'; 'Grilled Fillet of Hake with Chorizo, Mussels, Sherry & Saffron'; '8oz Steak Burger with a Ciabatta Bun with Smoked Cheddar, Mayonnaise, Bacon & Fries' and 'Beetroot Risotto with Goats Cheese Crostini & Olive Oil' from the listed mains.
Friendly, helpful service.
