If you have a taste for modern British cooking with an international twist you're going to love Baba's Bistro. Here you can sample some innovative dishes, such as a starter of ham hock and Stornoway black pudding terrine served with some lovely crusty bread and a gooseberry compote. For a main, try the wild boar tortelloni served with game & juniper sauce, then finish with the excellent apricot and damson tart, served with honey and almond yoghurt and a thyme syrup. Delicious!
