Casual and stylish neighbourhood eatery with inspired brunch and lunch options, and occasional supper clubs.
It would be wholly right to have high expectations of this confidently casual new neighbourhood eatery. Happily it more than exceeds them. The joy here is in the details, from the carefully chosen modern rustic décor to plates of food with competent, bold and inventive balances of flavour. Jessica Elliott Dennison brings with her a wealth of experience as a food stylist and writer as well as having produced her own cookery book. Lentils and beetroot are enlivened with walnuts and brambles and scattered with a comforting, creamy grating of feta. A humble egg on sourdough is exciting, served with yoghurt, harissa and lemon. Cordials, pickles and cakes, including a hazelnut chocolate and pear loaf, are all made in-house. Obadiah coffee is predictably top-notch, particularly alongside a homemade tahini ice-cream with red wine-poached figs. All this enjoyed in the cosy surrounds of this bright, sunny gem makes for genuinely memorable eating.
