TURN-ONS We enjoyed an early evening cocktail before eating - mango mojito with fresh mint grown nearby - we loved the wave sliders which are mini versions of the restaurant's three signatures - the wild Hereford burger, pulled porker and BLT. They were done to perfection with quality ingredients. We followed that with a no pain all grain salad of red rice, beans and mixed grains that include quinoa, spelt and barley, cherry tomatoes, red onions and pomegranate which was healthy, tasty and fresh. The desserts were interesting, we tried the N'Icepops which are real ice lollies made fresh and locally with natural ingredients, and if you're over 18, you can try the boozy options - we opted for sangria. We also tried the Eaton mess with meringue, mango purée, fresh fruit and cream, which was delicious and just right with the sweetness.
TURN-OFFS As the restaurant is only open Friday to Sunday, it is usually packed with weekend holidaymakers.
DRINKS There is a bar with a good selection of beers and cocktails.
