A good restaurant - open during the season only - close to the Barbara Hepworth museum. It also doubles as an art gallery - which gives an added interest - plus easy change of décor.
A seasonally-changing menu is based on a backbone of local ingredients, many coming from the sea.
An early Spring menu brought 'Mackerel Escabeche with Pickled Cucumbers'; 'Duck Liver Parfait with Fig Chutney & Toast' and 'Mussel Steamed with Chorizo, White Wine & Coriander' amongst the short list of starters.
'Cider-Baked Pork Belly with Crackling, Pickled Apples, Celeriac Dauphinoise & Seasonal Greens'; 'Prawn, Mussel & Home-Salted Cod Stew with Leeks, Potatoes & Aioli'; 'Roasted Whole Plaice with Clams, New Potatoes & Purple Sprouting Broccoli' and 'Mascarpone & Truffle Oil Ravioli with Seasonal Vegetables' on the list of mains.
Puds such as 'Cardamom Pannacotta with Liquorice Poached Orange' and 'New Season Rhubarb Crumble with Crème Fraiche Ice Cream' might be on offer to tempt you at the end.
