It's easy to find this restaurant because of the muly-coloured graffiti covering much of it's exterior. The colourful theme continues inside, with modern furnishings, coffee table books and geometric artwork.
On the food front, the day starts with Breakfast, with dishes as diverse as 'Pecan & Banana Muffin' & 'Toast, Jam & Marmalade' through 'Porridge with Tea-Soaked Prunes' & 'Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberries & Crème Fraiche' to 'Kippers with English Muffins & Herb Butter' & 'Full English Breakfast'.
Lunch brings an expansion with a few interesting pasta dishes - such as 'Duck & Wild Garlic Ravioli with Duck Heart & Lavender'; Fishcakes, Salads and Specials - such as 'Flame-Grilled Mackerel with Cucumber & Brown Shrimp' and 'Blade of Beef with Pearl Barley & Parmesan'.
In the evening further ambition brought 'Haunch of Venison with Salt-Baked Celeriac & Chocolate'; 'Roast Cod with Hollandaise, Sprouting Broccoli & Fennel' & Herdwck Lamb with Pickled Carrots & Sheeps Cheese' to an early Spring menu.
Seasonal Puds, such as 'Cox Apple Crumbe with Clotted Cream'; 'Burnt Cream with Earl Grey Prunes' and Bitter Chocolate with Hazelnut & Sea Salt' are offered throughout the day.
Friendly, helpful service.
