Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

A glance at the wine list is the first indication that this bar and restaurant is doing things differently. Wine flights are offered, together with a decent number of well-priced, well-chosen wines available by the glass. A changing selection of fine wines kept in tip-top condition in an enomatic system lets customers sample without having to buy the whole bottle.

Brown and beige retro wallpaper, faux-leather swivel armchairs and button-back banquettes provide a calm atmosphere by day, and a neutral background for musicians and cocktails by night.

Weekend brunches are very popular; there’s a small outdoor area for enjoying the sunshine. The kitchen produces dishes with plenty of locally sourced ingredients, competently cooked.

We ordered white onion soup with cheese on toast, hanger steak with chips and béarnaise sauce, and bouillabaisse-style fish stew with saffron mayonnaise. Passion-fruit slice with buttermilk sorbet finished off a set lunch that was great value and thoroughly enjoyable. A daily changing evening menu makes the Establishment ideal for locals who want a regular haunt.
