Locally inspired inventive modern cooking near the quay

A 17th-century fishermen's cottage just a few steps from the quayside of pretty Emsworth harbour provides the setting for Lawrence and Julia Murphy's smart brasserie. The stripped-out interior of cream walls, wooden floors and unclothed tables is as unvarnished and honest as the food. Excellent raw materials do the talking and the menu is an appetising fusion of modern, well-thought-through ideas. It might take in salmon céviche with pickled cucumber and horseradish cream, then move on to roast duck breast with carrot houmous and orange in cumin jus. At the end, ginger parkin comes with plum compôte and matching sorbet.
