18 Oct Salon
After shifting from pop-up to permanent, Nicholas Balfe’s eatery is now firmly rooted in this former Market Row hair salon. Downstairs, grab a few small dishes or sausage rolls and indulge in what is quite a drinks selection.
Upstairs, by the open kitchen, sit back in the peacock-blue dining room and pamper your tastebuds with the creative and seasonal taster menu at night: mackerel crudo, elderberries and horseradish; roe deer, plum ketchup, kale and sesame…). On the weekends, comforting recipes take over: cannellini beans butt in atop the “Not avocado on toast” and the decadent Neal’s Yard cheese toastie with marrow chutney makes an appearance.
