Eight Over Eight

Tried this on a recommendation with friends late(ish) on a Sunday evening. After cocktails in the front bar (from an imaginative and well-planned list), we took our seats in the dining room. I was told this used to be a rather down-at heel pub, which is difficult to envisage now. The atmosphere, lighting and decor are just right. A sophisticated, but unpretentious younger crowd, clearly here for the food. Scallops and sushi a highlight. Blackened cod also good, though expensive as always. Mouthwatering selections of sliced beef, pork, vegetables and noodles, presented faultlessly. Great wine list, although much of it at the steep end. Friendly, attentive, but appropriately laid back service -- we really were looked after very well.

Not a cheap evening out for what it is, but highly recommended.
