The dining room has a bar and open kitchen along one side. Seating consists of wicker bar stools alongside the marble-topped bars, with some frosted glass partitions breaking up the dinibg room a little. The floor is wood, the walls white tiled with a few framed black and white food and wine photographs as decoration. Wines started at £14.95 and the two pages of wines on the list included decent offerings such as Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc 2007 at £27.95 (retail price around £8) and Agustinos Chilean Chardonnay 2007 at £18.95 (retail around £6). Most wines were under £40, but there was a vintage 1995 Krug at £250 (retail price around £120) for those with something special to celebrate. 

The menu is static enough that it is actually framed on the wall. It is traditional British, mostly fish but with a few meatier offerings. Tomato and basil soup (£2.95) was typical of the style, in this case a properly made soup with good tomato taste and fresh basil (13/20). Fish and chips was cod in a quite good batter, the fish nicely cooked through, the chips reasonably crispy. This was accompanied by pleasant mushy peas and tartare sauce (12/20). Bread was just slices of baguette, not of any great quality, but fresh and pleasant. Service was casual but friendly, and fairly efficient at this busy lunchtime. I think this restaurant delivers very nicely to what one might reasonably expect of it.
