Only appearing every other Thursday for two sittings at 6.30 and 8.30 p.m. this is an exclusive dining experience not to be missed.
The day time deli is a pleasant experience for a coffee and a home-made cake but the transformation in the evening for the pop-up restaurant is fabulous. With only eight covers per sitting the deli setting makes for an intimate, different and interesting environment.
Beautifully set tables, starched white table cloths and relaxing music set a wonderful backdrop to the friendly, realxed greeting from the manager when you arrive. They set the tone for the evening which is a truly relaxing experience.
Food choice is straightforward as the menu offers a simple choice of two starters, two main courses (but ring in advance if you are a vegetarian) and a set dessert. That's as simple as it gets because the presentation of the food is a visual delight and the taste exquisite. Served in an unobtrusive and understated way the whole experience is a joy and up there with many of the more expensive restaurants I have been to.
The owner/chef, James Hepworth, has a great track record and cooks extensively for private parties. He's managed to create a private and intimate fine dining experience with a relaxed feel - a great achievement in a small place.
The cost at only £20 per head represents truly exceptional value as the food is great and you can take your own alcohol which helps the enjoyment and keeps the costs down!
Being in the deli is a bity quirky and the only 'down side' is that the loo is situated on the top floor and is an interesting hike and equally interesting when it's reached - best advice is to cross your legs and go to the pub on the way home.
A true hidden gem in the heart of the city; I loved the experience and want to share it because it was so good but it's also someting I want to keep quiet so I can make sure I get in again some time soon!
