Behind the Victorian features of the Raglan Hotel, Sushi 101 purveys an appetising line in new-style Japanese: mains such as miso-smeared lamb cutlets, and desserts like green tea ice-cream paired with still-hot mango tempura. However, the basics don’t always pass muster. Chutoro (medium fatty tuna sashimi) was off-colour and off-flavour on our most recent visit. Fancier items concocted by an ex-Nobu chef work better. Mango and crabmeat maki were satisfyingly soft, fresh and skilfully constructed.

The L-shaped restaurant provides table and counter dining and is smart – though shiny black surfaces, white vinyl cuboid seating and a 1980s pop soundtrack make for an oddly retro experience. The fish tank set into one wall must be a child-pleaser, but couples and groups of business people appear to be the norm at lunchtime.
