Pork belly with wet polenta and winter greens was flawless and extremely welcome on a fresh winter day. A plate of virgin white horseradish risotto was awesome – the rice oozing across the wide plate highlighted a perfect consistency, whilst the pungent, mustardy and slightly acidic hit of horseradish was knockout…

The food is good, though the menu doesn’t hang together. There’s a stern ascetic streak in a salad of crab, broccoli and sorrel; a pudding that looks like a workhouse plate of milk froth and oats; and fabulous pearly cod with beans and bacon bits. (…) Throw in the most memorable dish – seared monkfish liver with a kick like anchovies and an Asian dipping sauce – and you’d expect to be bewildered…

“Fresh cheese, onions, dill”, “Crab, broccoli, sorrel”, “Raw mackerel, ginger, white soy”. Uncomplicated, fresh, colourful, seasonal dishes each, with a confidence in the (top quality) ingredients and none over a tenner. The mackerel was particularly well-received, like something the Clove Club might do…

Those vats offer reasonably priced take out or drink in house style wines, a beautiful French concept we haven’t really cottoned on to here. At 11-12 quid a bottle for on sales it makes a fine argument for more people doing the same. The food prices too are very reasonable, and you won’t spend more than fifteen a head without a bottle of that wine, though why you wouldn’t have one, I can’t imagine…

Fresh English peas are dressed with garlic butter and topped with raw egg yolk drizzled with lemon oil, then garnished with toasted almond. The result is dramatically colourful and savoury. Raw mackerel is soused with manzanilla sherry and white soy sauce, and topped with salmon roe, enhancing the Japanese effect. A finely diced tartare of rose veal sirloin, instead of tenderloin, is used for a chewier, more flavourful effect…

[The chef] brought out exceptionally fine Tuscan salami, fat, wobbly, skinned raw mackerel fillets bathed in white soy and topped with crisp ginger, a sensationally fine heritage tomato salad crocheted together with toasted crumbs, and a wondrous dish of English peas with molten egg yolk, curd and nibbed almonds. On finishing it, we immediately ordered it again…
