💭 I really enjoyed this meal – a truly great showcase of how bloody brilliant vegetables can be. I liked the mixture of hearty and lighter dishes. The restaurant is cosy, intimate and homely. The team are lovely – friendly, passionate and knowledgeable. I’ll definitely be back here!

🏆 Faves: The kebab, lentil pate, beetroot & smoked almond, the lentil fritters & the choc mousse. The bread was great too!

🙅🏼‍♀️ Wouldn’t order again: I didn’t love the radicchio with the kebabs (not a fan of the bitterness) but I really liked the rest of the dish. Carrot salad I could take or leave. I’d choose the choc mousse over the peach ice cream
