A real fantastic place, both a relaxed local gem of a place but also punching much higher with the skill and complexity of its cooking, not surprising given the Roux/Gavroche pedigree!
The most comforting but taken to an art form dish is the caccio e pepe, here served with celeriac instead of pasta, so you almost feel guilt free eating it. The scallops with endive and blood orange were heavenly, and as is often the case I think the small starter dishes are the most creative and interesting. The ox cheek ravioli were rather bland. The dessert of chocolate fondant was exceptional, and the very thoughtful individual amuse bouche and petit fours were all provided free of charge and tailored to all our table's food intolerances, no mean feat. Beautiful decor, slightly nervous and intrusive staff who actually probably didn't know the food techniques as well as they should, and kept trying to refill our glasses and suggest alcohol a little too often for comfort, but minor glitches when the food is this good.
