Very quaint restaurant with only 6 tables, so we were expecting the food to be spot on. For starters..... Unfortunately, my escargot were very rubbery and the puff pastry was burnt. Sonia ate the duck rillett, which she really enjoyed. For mains...... My pork cheeks were quite nice and very tender in the main, but the mash lacked seasoning and butter. I was completely put off when I found something that looked like a fingernail in my mash though. Sonia's duck was over seasoned to the point of drying ones mouth out. She did enjoy the new potatoes though. Dessert....... My apple crumbles was OK, but the apple could have done with a bit more stewing. I wasn't asked whether I wanted cream, ice cream or custard. My preference would have been custard but it came with ice cream. Sonia had the Lemon meringue pie, which she said tasted shop bought and lacked the lemon flavour required of a good Lemon meringue. We would not visit here again just because the mistakes were rookie errors and staff that lacked that attention to detail.
Excellent food using locally sourced ingredients. Wonderful service with a good atmosphere. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Fantastic and would definitely recommend as the quality of food was superb.
Excellent service and wonderful food. A lovely little restaurant in a quiet location close to the centre.. Would definitely recommend. Will certainly return if we visit Brighton again
