West One: A hidden gem!
Booked to eat at the restaurant above west one wine bar as id driven past it a few times on my way to work.....well what can i say, absolutley amazing. the decor was really fresh, similar to the bar downstairs but more understated. the waiter was so lovely, showing us to our sat and making us feel relaxed.
looking at the menu it was around the right size, 5 starters, 7 mains, 5 desserts plus cheese. i was later informed that they change the menu every few weeks so that's great news for me!
the food was some of the best ive ever tasted and im not exagerating! i have eaten in many restaurants including some one and two michelin stars and i would say that it is comparable to them.
please if youre reading this and you like good food and at reasonable costs try it its a hidden gem!
if youre on a budget you can eat mid week for 3 courses for £16 including wine, who can say better than that!
Favorite Dish: I am a fish fanatic and this chef really knows how to cook it to perfection. i had the halibut, cooked three ways with a cucmber and fish veloute (plus other bits and peices), my mouth is watering now just thinking about it! The winner of the night. For starters i went for the pan fried cod cheek risotto and dessert the trio of strawberries, both were a delight.

The Oldswinford Pub: Wouldn't bother if I were you
Steak and ale pie sounded nice on the menu, but I suspect that Fray Bentos were the real cooks involved in its production. Dry and tasteless, but at least the mash with it was genuine - you could tell by the lumps. I finished with the syrup sponge which had spent a little too long in the microwave. All edible, but I could have thrown this together at home for a fraction of the price.
Favorite Dish: None (beer good though, so would recommend this as a pub rather than an eatery)
