We were warmly welcomed by our waitress and quickly shown to our table in the bar area of this busy, bustling restaurant.
The choice of wine by the glass is very good, so we started with a glass each of Vermentino which was full of flavour while we made our choices from the menu.
We started with:
Fried baby squid, aioli and watercress
Char-grilled bacon, blue cheese, pear and walnut salad
And to follow:
Smoked haddock with shrimp and pea risotto
Parmesan gnocchi, butternut squash, kale, Norfolk Lady (a soft, pasteurised, ewes' milk cheese made near Wymondham)
The starters were delicious as was the haddock, but the gnocchi dish was disappointing. It was lacking flavour except for the Norfolk Lady cheese which was excellent. We chose to drink a Sauvignon de Touraine ‘Les Croix des Champs’ which was rather ordinary for the price.
It was lovely to see the restaurant so busy but I'm afraid it did raise issues with service. The service, although friendly, was extremely slow. Our main course arrived an hour after we’d ordered which was really too long to wait.
