Dominic Jack Chef Patron has earned his Michelin Star through his hard work, innovation, attention to detail and foodie flare.
City center with a Michelin Star, 3AA Rosettes and nominated New Comer of the year by five foodie ambassadors.
On arrival you will be met by friendly staff that put you at your ease taking coats and confirming bookings. The interior design is very smart with a sophisticated touches that keep it feeling comfortable while luxurious.
The menu can be approached in a number of ways with the set menu lunch at around £25 (add £19 for wine to accompany each course), a la carte and the tasting menu. The menu offers options that use locally sourced produce and that are prepared in interesting ways and often with a well balanced twist. There are some surprises such as the appetizer we were served shortly after we sat down which included a Caesar salad jelly on a biscuit which was as weird and wonderful as it sounds.
The food was very good, the following should give you a flavour, Ham Hock Ravioli, Oxtail Parcels, Partridge with Caramelized Walnuts, Dover sole from the North Sea, served with Chips and Sauce Bearnaise. Simple food cooked exceptionally well with flavours that were spot on.
When the restaurant first opened there was much support and fan fair around the fact it was owned by Tom Kitchin, the decor, the website and even the menu seemed to have the Kitchin stamp. While in the early days this may have detracted from the chef-patron Dominic Jack it helped with publicity and booking. Dominic Jack is now master of his own restaurant, reputation and ambition; we wish him further success.
We will be going back its just a matter of when.
