The menu looks as if you're going to get pub food and, in a sense, you do. However, it's pub food that's been seen through a 21st century lens, with the food and the way it is presented both influenced by much finer dining than you might expect. We had a great Cape Malay chicken curry, delicate spicing working around a strong spine of cardamon, and an equally delicious bobotie. With some (delicious, and extremely reasonably-proced) red left in the bottle, we followed up with a starter portion of deep-fried Camembert, a South African pub classic from two decades ago but, once again, re-imagined for today. The environment was delightful, the staff friendly and attentive, and the bill, when it came, was tiny. We liked it so much we went back the next night for some (superb) fish and chips.
