The success of its younger Bath sibling is helping to bring more attention to this bright, high-roofed space converted from three sheds and sitting in a courtyard in the town centre. Owners Danielle Phillips and Dan Saunders were previously front of house and head chef at The Walnut Tree and their “tapas-style” small plates are “unfailingly brilliant – food that smacks you in the face and service that makes you feel like you’re royalty”.

“A lovely little find that’s something different from the norm” – these three sheds decorated with local art sit in a courtyard in the centre of the town. It offers “a well thought out small-plate menu from an open kitchen, showcasing the chefs working with love and care over plates of food which are beautifully presented and taste fantastic”. “Definitely worth a visit for everyone when in the area”.

Attractively set in three converted sheds dotted with art, a “good local restaurant serving fresh, innovative food” of a seasonal small-plates bent, and which, according to fans, just “keeps on getting better”. The owners also run a more casual coffee shop/deli a few minutes’ walk away.
