For starters, she had the mixed olives while I had the prosciutto with caramelised peach with rocket salad. Another reviewer described the peaches as "tinned", I think marinated is more likely, certainly they were delicious and did not taste tinned. Both starters very enjoyable.
Then she had the baked king prawns with fusilli, an unusual choice for somebody who doesn't even like pasta, but she liked this, the huge prawns and the imaginative sauce including peppers and spinach. My Moroccan lamb stew with couscous (from the set menu) was a revelation, delicately flavoured: chunks of lamb in their sauce surrounding a small, fragrant scoop of couscous.
Despite starting to feel full, we wanted dessert and went for the chocolate truffle torte and the raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake. Both of these were somehow rich and light at the same time, and very flavourful, the chocolate especially.
All servings were of modest size, as befits a restaurant rather than a pub, excepting the olives: two people could easily share this starter. Service was impeccable. And all with a view of Clifford's Tower!
Tempted to give 5 stars, but I'm choosy about those. Let's call it 4+.
