We tend to go to Elliot’s Cafe during weekends, usually on Sunday’s when the restaurant offers a fixed Sunday lunch menu of some of their best dishes (£25 pp). This time was no different. The Sunday fixed menu consisted of:

  • Complementary sourdough bread & butter (8/10)
  • Squid and curry butter (7.5/10)
  • Roasted chicken & garlic with potato dauphinoise and pumpkin & kale salad (8.5/10)
  • Apple crumble & Cheese cake ice cream (8/10)

The cooking at Elliot’s Cafe is best described as a modern take on old country-style cooking. I’m normally not a big fan of chicken, but when it’s cooked like this…it makes me salivate. Marvellous.

The total bill at Elliot’s Cafe came to £70 (including service charge, 2 coffees, 2 pear juices and 1 tea). I have only one minor gripe with Elliot’s Cafe…why don’t they have an espresso machine?
