We had the blackberry tomato tart and it was out of this world. The plum and peach salad and the scallops were great. The berry dessert was very good.

Been here a few times and it’s absolutely fantastic. I think the burgers are the best in the city. Would recommend making a night of it. Starting with some cocktails at the bar and then having their shishito peppers and then one of the mains.
