Summary

“Utterly reliable in every way: year in and year out, it’s always a real pleasure to visit” – few restaurants have the longevity of Paul Hart’s modern brasserie “favourite” near the Castle: an “attractive and airy” (and business-friendly) environment, with a “calm and quiet” (“slightly bland”) atmosphere, a “well-run” air, and very dependable modern British cuisine. “What’s not to like?”

Summary

Tim Hart’s “very polished” contemporary brasserie near the castle has been a linchpin of city-centre dining since the early ’90s, and – outside of the ‘fine dining’ vein – remains the city’s No. 1 destination, thanks to its combination of a “well-executed” modern menu produced “with some flair” and “very professional service”. The setting provides “an excellent ambience for lunch meetings” – by night it can seem a little less atmospheric.

Summary

Tim Hart’s “modern”, ’90s brasserie near the castle is one of the city’s culinary linchpins and remains the most commented-upon place in the city centre. A “slick” operation, it’s still seen by many reporters as a “reliable” favourite, but ratings waned this year amidst complaints from one or two regulars of increasingly “predictable” cooking, and a “lack of atmosphere”.

Summary

Tim Hart’s “confident” ’90s brasserie near the castle is an unusually “discreet and efficient” modern brasserie, serving “totally reliable” modern cuisine in a “light and airy” (slightly “corporate”) setting. “For a business meal in particular, it’s pitched just right”.
