Alistair used to cook in The Daniel Defoe along Church Street, and having often eaten there we decided to check out his new restaurant, also on Church Street. We went along on a Friday evening for dinner. Being the first ones in there initially, the place soon filled up and seemed quite a popular choice, so it looked promising for a good experience. The table service was quick and polite and the simple decor of the place was appealing. The wine list was good and the red we choice really tasty. However that is unfortunately where the positives end in the experience.
