We tried this out for the first time recently having always been intrigued by their lovely gated entrance. What a little star this is! If you haven't tried it yet, don't wait too long.
The downstairs section around a tiny bar is traditional in feel and so characterful. It’s a bit like eating in a room just off the kitchen in some grand big house. There’s a peaceful sort of tucked away ambience which isn’t at all twee. Their pre-theatre menu is good value and has lots of options. We both had the starter of goats’ cheese with beetroot and celeriac crisps. It was lovely. For mains we had a vegetarian lentil and squash stew, which arrived with some great tempura broccoli on top and was delicious, and the pork belly with sauté potatoes. This should be their signature dish. The pork was awesome and not the usual compressed strip. This was more like pulled pork and in a large piece. I liked ‘Molly's famous’ Belgian Chocolate Brownie with Chocolate Stout Ice Cream and Chocolate Sauce. Definitely for the chocoholics in our midst, that one.
They do a range of their own ales with some great names and a nice Suffolk draught cider. I tried this on a whim since I'm not usually a cider fan and liked it so much I ordered a second glass.
Our server was really friendly and at the end asked for our opinion of what she said was their new menu. Her request for feedback seemed genuine. In any case she can’t have been unhappy with what we had to say.
It had all been great.
Can’t wait to go back again now!
