“A little gem”
Reviewed 27 May 2011

Made one of our regular lunchtime visits to this little gem of a restaurant. As always excellent food, spot-on presentation and warm and friendly service. And all for the price of the average chain. No microwaved fare here though! Chef/owner Grant produces wonders from the tiny kitchen using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. The small, but perfectly formed dining room is tastefully furnished (converted from a butchers shop). The pork belly is always good, but then so is everything. Vegetarian options are as interesting as the rest. Three lunchtime courses for less than £19 (a touch more with greater choice in the evenings) - what more could you ask for!

Has dinner here a few days ago and the restaurant looked friendly but had no music or ambience. Food was nice but pudding had to be sent back .... Main course of pork was very yummy.... Would give it 5/10

“Will you still love me when I'm at No. 65?”
Reviewed 29 October 2010

We've eaten at this fine restaurant on three occassions (including on our wedding day) and each time the experience has been excellent. The menu is varied with seasonal British ingredients (with a modern twist!), perfectly balanced with a good choice of tasty starters and filling main courses. The service has always been very good. Highly recommended.

“Interesting English menu in a cafe style”
Reviewed 21 October 2010

We got a table for 2 without booking on a Friday night (just) and it was well worth the visit. Friendly welcome and attentive staff.
The menu was very good and included some innovative combinations with being too weird. All good quality and good sized portions.
Reasonable wine list although my glass of white was not chilled enough.
Only a small place but thoroughtly worth a try.
Excellent English food amongst the usual Indian and fast food offerings.
