Owners Liz Buttimore and Bradley Hornby continue to champion the themes of foraging, seasonal ingredients and distinctly regional fare, now offering a new iteration of three-, four- or seven-course fixed menus. Thoroughly professional front of house staff include sommelier Astrid Chong who displays a fantastic knowledge of the menu and thoughtfully selected wines, matched with a warm, welcoming manner. Technically well-crafted plates expressing seasonal produce might include the superb flavours and textures of deep-fried cauliflower and wild samphire in an entree of bluefin tuna or an unctuous, creamy hazelnut parfait, juxtaposed with a tangy blackberry sorbet. As you would hope for in this vibrant wine region, the impressive wine list is both interesting and innovative.
