Appealing bistro cooking in a popular city-centre venue

Tasting menu

Wines by the glass

Andrew Hanson's unassuming-looking restaurant resembles a classic modern bistro inside with clothed tables pressed in cheek by jowl, blackboard menus and small framed pictures against a delicate yellow colour scheme. The cooking is an appealing mix of local produce and French influences, with the emphasis on fish and seafood, but not forgetting fine Welsh lamb. Potted chicken rillettes matched with pistachio and thyme butter, fig chutney and toasted sourdough makes for a hearty opener, followed by a time-honoured main-course combination of calves' liver, button mushrooms, shallots, Alsace bacon and Madeira sauce, and potato purée. Finish with vanilla pannacotta with raspberry coulis, or brioche bread-and-butter pudding with honey and whisky.
