we loved the quality chophouse in the 80's so were pleased as locals to see 'meatballs' decline and the opening of what appeared to be a serious stylish restaurant with an interest in the history of the chophouse plus a refined wine list. we have eaten here a few times now and enjoy its grown up ambience and menus reflecting the seasons. The simple chop and glass of wine lunch is great albeit on the small side. However i'm not to happy with the butchers shop next door as I've been treated like a complete moron by the staff.
i cook a lot , i know about food and i love it....i asked what sort of pork is it ? its free range was the unfriendly reply? i had of course meant middle white, gloucester old spot etc i was ticked off for referring to the terrine as pate , actually its neither its more like a pressed meat....plus i was actually charged 20p for a chicken neck , cannot believe the mean spirit of the staff there (bearded! of course de rigeur in this area / i rest my case!) . we tried the sausages and they were so salty they were inedible, will stick to Gazzano's across the road , also half the price ! its a shame as its a lovely shop but will avoid it in future as don't wish to be humiliated!
