Exceptionally rich potted crab -- a thin layer of fat, beneath a medium layer of sweet snowy crabmeat, and the riches of caramel coloured fat from just beneath the shell. Sharply dressed frisee and green beans provided a bite of acidity to cut that richness, and crispy melba toast for a textural counterpoint.

Good hearty beefy flavours in the ribeye, pleasant triple fried potatoes with a crunchy surface, fairly concentrated fruitiness in the oven dried tomtatoes, simple green beans and a rich tangy bearnaise sauce to finish off the beef. A medium to full bodied montepulciano drank well with the beef, fruity, earthy, slightly "dusty," finishing with a bright lick of acidity.

Solid sticky toffee pudding, fully permeated with the toffee sauce, enhanced with pecans and a good vanilla ice cream.

They also retail wine by the bottle.

Handsome space, graceful with seeming age, a very comfortable dining room with skylights and pretty painted reliefs.
