We strive for an authentic Irish bistro menu with contemporary, seasonal twists, utilising the finest, locally sourced produce. Certain perennial favourites – our Roast Marrow Bone or Devilled Kidneys on Sourdough Toast, or Fern Allen's original Spinach & Mushroom Pancake - remain untouchable, however. 

We would surely risk a rebellion by our most loyal Leesiders were they ever to be removed. In keeping with the spirit of the adjoining gallery, artful presentation of all our dishes is of equal importance to the provenance of our produce.
