Ordered: Sea bream ceviche, lime & chilli 9, delightful! Steak tartare, Burford brown egg yolk, toasted sourdough 11, this was a problem with communication with the waitress. Asked for a small portion, she said it was very small, but in fact it could really be for two people. Was ordered by a petite woman. Carlingford rock oysters, shallot vinegar & brown bread 6no 18, was fabulous and fresh, but no bread arrived with these. Also ordered baked skate, which was delightful, especially for skate. The escargot was nicely done, but had to also ask for bread with this. But the funny order was this: "Mixed leaves salad 3 French fries 4 French beans & confit shallot 4". This is what the menu said. I thought we needed some greens and for £4 I ordered this for us. I read it out loud for comedic effect since there were three of us and I thought it was hilarious how it came with 3 french fries and 4 french beans. I commented that we would fight for the 4th bean. Hahaha. Well the joke was on us because the waitress, failed to see the humour in this. Although I read this word-for-word straight off the menu, she delivered us a mixed leaves salad. And 3 orders of french fries. And 3 orders of french beans. Well in the end I was perplexed until I figured out what happened and I ended up not saying anything but paying for the lot anyhow so I wouldn't cause a fuss with my lunch guests. The rosé is a nice Portugese variety. All-in-all, decent value and the menu is better than previously at hops, a bit less pub-like, which is nice. The atmosphere was fantastic - a sunny day out on the patio with heaters to take the edge off the cool breeze. More
