Food and drink
Fresh, seasonal and rustic are the keywords here where menus are created and dictated to daily according to the best produce available that very morning, so is difficult to predict. Expect dishes such as langoustine ravioli in a bisque, pasta with black truffles and gaspacho with prosciutto. Further in tune with its artisan ethos, breads and pastries are made in-house.
Go for the set menu to get a sample of the best of everything that day from a choice of meat, fish and game such as red deer. Lighter options such as salads, soups and crostini’s are also available during lunch service.
This is no exuberant trattoria experience, rather instead a more reigned-in sophisticated setting where serious food and wine not noisy vivacity dominates the atmosphere. The restaurant to the rear of the deli is quite small but does open out into a small terrace overlooking the lovely St Anthony’s Hall Garden.
Enthusiastic and knowledgeable, the staff are great and their passion for what they do and how they do it truly shows.
Next to the Quilt Museum to the east of the city centre just inside the city walls albeit on a rvery unremarkable street rightly neglected by visitors.
A tasting menu starts at £36 during the evening though if this seems a little rich choose instead to pay around £22 for two courses. For lunch, a set menu comes in at £22.50 and includes a glass of wine.
