Summary

Overlooked by many guides, Chef/patron David Wykes deserves much greater recognition for his “stand out” (if “loud and crowded”) five-year-old venture, behind a fishmonger. The menu can sound “funny and Wonka-inspired”, but “wow!”“a huge range of fish” is “perfectly prepared” and “exquisitely presented” as part of “imaginative” dishes showing “real innovation and skill”.
