Really can't imagine a nicer spot for lunch with friends on a grey day. The staff is young and helpful. The interior design allows glimpses of wonderful fresh meat, fish and wine, as well as a great view of the busy kitchen.
The amuses bouche were flavourful and unusual (light pork scratchings with apple/mustard sauce and sicilian olives with salt cod brandade). I had a light citrussy crab salad starter. My turbot with cauliflower and cockles was one of the best fish dishes I have eaten, with wonderful clear flavours. The goats milk rice pudding and ice cream with honeycomb was extraordinarily well delivered with great flavour contrasts. The pre- and post-dessert treats were also wonderful.
