Creative menu offering new takes, twists and fusions on bistro classics in ample servings

The latest in a run of new openings down Broughton Street, this light, easygoing, 25-seater venue comes from the same stable as popular neighbourhood restaurants Three Birds and The Apiary. A variety of menus from brunch to pre-theatre to specials make for flexi-options at most times of day, with approachable, colourful and up-beat dishes predominating. The main ingredients are what you might expect: salmon, lamb, aubergine, but there's a hip or unusual element on almost every dish, from elderflower-cured biltong to smoked halloumi rosti. Most dishes are gluten-free.
