MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Thomas Carr is a skilful and experienced chef who understands his guests and the area well. Local fish is his forte and he serves it in a multitude of different ways, carefully selecting the accompaniments to enhance rather than dominate the star ingredient of each dish. The well-judged, perfectly balanced menu reflects both the region and the seasons: you might find mackerel, monkfish or bass alongside juicy Creedy Carver duck, with some playful desserts to follow.

The building, in the heart of town, was formerly a police station, and the restaurant’s name is a nod to the year it was constructed. Dark colours and an impressively high ceiling set the tone and the exposed stone walls are hung with seafood prints; there’s also a sweet little anteroom. Endearing service completes the picture.
