First I must confess: I have held off reviewing this wonderful spot for selfish reasons. It has been hard to get a reservation.
Luke Dale-Roberts, previously of Le Colombe fame, presently of The Test Kitchen fame, has opened a new tapas themed spot next door to the latter in the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock.
The space is small, and crammed with tables and South African art. The items on the menu are all small plates, and change regularly. Our favourites were the Asian steak tartare and Saki infused watermelon, but we still have much to try
Try the cocktails – the ginger and ginseng martinis are astonishing. Seating is at tables (some with 2 sittings) and at the counter, which is fine for two people, but won’t work for more.
Wines are pricy, but from an extensive list with many available by the glass.
Overall,, Luke has once again pulled off a world-class act.
