* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“The food is imaginative and amazing” according to fans of chef Paul Welburn’s noteworthy gem, buried on Summertown’s main shopping street, and “recently M-starred”. Feedback was more uneven this year though, with quite a few reporters disappointed, albeit acknowledging that the trip wasn’t all that bad (“dishes were technically accomplished, but they felt like they each could have lost a few ingredients – too many competing flavours…”; “might have been one of those evenings, but service was up and down…”; “the food was good, but the wine pairings were odd…”).

Chef Paul Welburn’s “excellent and beautifully presented” dishes from an “interesting” menu are winning accolades for a venue whose modest Summertown shopping-drag setting belies its ambition. Top Tip: sit upstairs, where the atmosphere is more “pleasant and relaxed”.

“It’s nothing much to look at (from either the outside or the inside!) but the standard of cooking is remarkably good” (albeit somewhat “cheffy”) at this modern British venue on Summertown’s main drag. “There is no getting away from the fact that it is in a row of shops, with its ground floor windows onto the street”“it’s better to sit upstairs in the front room, where the atmosphere is calmer and more relaxing”.
