TV chef Simon Rimmer's lively restaurant draws the crowds with exciting vegetarian cooking. Dark-wood tables and chairs, with some banquettes, boarded and tiled floors, some funky wallpaper and spotlights dangling from the ceiling all create a positive impression. Precisely flavoured cooking is the hallmark of the kitchen, with ideas picked up from around the globe in a menu that bursts with bright and appealing dishes. Hits among starters include deep-fried oyster mushrooms with pancakes and plum sauce, followed by fennel and potato curry, or the house burger made with chickpeas and veggie black pudding. Finish with a well-made pineapple and coconut Bakewell tart.
