This converted shop deserves its 'small but perfectly formed' tag, serving up set-price menus with a wine pairing option should you so choose. The flavours from the ambitious kitchen team may be classical, but the execution is thoroughly modern, as demonstrated in nasturtium ice cream with an onion squash velouté; squid risotto with cauliflower, Dublin Bay prawn and raspberry; hand-dived scallops with Douglas Fir butter; or squab with heritage beetroots and tasty paste relish. Desserts are no less modern or exciting – beeswax canelé with morello cherry and warm chamomile milk; or the unusual combination of Yorkshire forced rhubarb, mint granite and yogurt sorbet.
