The reviews and pictures of brunch looked fabulous at this place and also the good reviews for dinner so we booked for Friday night and can’t recommend it enough.
The restaurant was relaxed and although simply decorated, welcoming and cosy - we liked the tables and milk crate chairs - they were more than comfortable enough and original.
The menu is limited to about 3 items each for starter or main but if you are adventurous with food then that is all good - I had parsnip for starter and who knew that could be such a star of the show. My husband had wood pigeon which he had never tried before. The chef popped out and asked if we would mind him adding walnuts as he thought it would go nicely which we thought was great that he was adapting as the evening went and the dish was delicious.
We both had partridge for main which was new for both of us and it was again delicious. Also the chef had confit the legs and made a little pate from the bird and served it along side which was a tasty extra and showed great skill and care utilising all the bits of the bird.
We had to head off to get our train home so we left with our caramel donuts packed up to go - they were a great sweet treat to enjoy on the journey home - 3 big fluffy donuts with a rich caramel sauce...you wouldn’t get that on British Rail!
Amazing food from the chef team and really friendly service from the blond waitress who managed the front of house brilliantly. It’s great that you can take you’re own drinks as it makes the bill very reasonable - our meal was £57 and worth every penny.
Well done Ceres - we’ll be back for brunch very soon!
