The Sticky Walnut is spread over two floors, with chunky wooden tables, blackboards and an open kitchen. First course chicken liver pâté with apple and pear chutney and buttery toasted focaccia delivers complementary flavours and shows refinement in its presentation. Or choose squab pigeon breast with quince, salsify, caraway and meat juices, before a main course of fillet of brill matched with pumpkin and parmesan risotto and sautéed wild mushrooms. Meaty mains bring full-bore flavours, perhaps braised beef shin with truffle chips and onion purée. With cracking desserts like a deconstructed lime cheesecake with pecan butter biscuits and chocolate sorbet, this is a kitchen that delivers real impact.
