This wine-centric basement dining room has petrol-blue walls, exposed brickwork and bare wooden tables. Sitting on a stool at the bar gives a view into the efficiently run kitchen, while smartly dressed staff provide sleek, unobtrusive service to the buzzing room. The menu is accessible bistro-style fare. A thick and punchy gazpacho with prawns and sweet morsels of pickled cucumber and olives is a delightful start; follow on with grilled rib-eye, or a perfectly-cooked sea trout with crushed new potatoes, samphire and caper beurre noisette. Apricot roasted with honey and lemon thyme and matched with Amaretto and apricot sorbet and almond palmiers is a pretty finish.
