We did make it there tonight. The setting is very nice. The indoor section is small but full of nooks and crannies. Very cool. The patio is large for the area (capacity of 40) and was full up shortly after we arrived. Nice touches like seashells embedded in the concrete.
On the beer menu, I was interested in the Durham Red Dragon on cask, and the Hop Addict. Unfortunately, they were out of the Red Dragon tonight. My wife tried a sample of the Church-Key Lager, but it didn't impress so she also had a Hop Addict, which was very good as always. They also offer Mill Street Organic Lager, so I think there is room to change the Church-Key offering to something more interesting.
The food menu is short. I went for the Mac & Cheese & Sausage, and my wife had the Bangers and Mash. It ended up being the same sausage presented two different ways, and the mains were OK but ultimately underwhelmed.
We struck gold with the desserts. She had the sticky toffee pudding and gave me The Look of Death after I took a second forkful of it. (It reminded me of the time I tried to take too many of her frites at C'est What.) I went for the dark chocolate & Bailey's tart. I didn't get much Bailey's out of it, but the chocolate was rich and delicious. Yum.
A solid and unique addition to the neighbourhood.
