When you read the career trajectory of the head chef here you expect great things, and when you walk into this place and see the open firepit and smell the sucking pig roasting you expect even greater things.
Set in an industrial themed space upstairs featuring exposed brickwork, steel girders and huge slabs of granite for work tops.
Our party was 7 in total, old friends who haven't seen each other for a while, and this place is perfect for it. Large friendly atmosphere with staff who are more than happy to engage in conversations with you, the music is great and not so loud you have to shout, which is becoming a big turnoff in my old age.
The food arrives, I have veal sweetbreads to start and rabbit for my main, others in the group had cod, the pumpkin salad and a couple have steak. It's all excellent, made evident with the chatter having stopped completely and our only communication being nodding and pointing to plates with forks, exchanging plates with the other members, then nodding some more.
When you finish dinner we head downstairs to the bar serving some classic cocktails and excellent whiskies. A special mention should go to one of the bartenders, who not only made me one of the best old fashioneds I've had, but also made multiple excellent whisky recommendations including a Tullamore Dew 14 and a delicious Glenfarclas 25. Chatty and friendly she's hard to miss, just follow the bright blue hair...
I'll be back here, it's perfect for small to large groups who want good food done very, very well. I just need to find a small to large group immediately...
