This modern British restaurant is more than just its food. The experience begins in an underground former 19th century Victorian couch house complete with exposed brick arches and tables situated in cosy nooks and crannies. While the setting may be historic, the food certainly is not. This juxtaposition works perfectly, and you can enjoy delicious plant-based dishes created by Chef Patron Alex Bond.
