Dining alone needn't be miserable.... Elliots made me feel perfectly comfortable as a lone diner. I was offered a good table but opted for a seat at the bar. It's better to people watch as its close to the window.
Although I have been several times the maitre d was keen to explain how the menu works and that it changes daily.
All the produce is sourced locally and there is even a cool video on their website.
The bread basket is amazing, it's hard not to overindulge here, but as I had ordered some scrummy food I held back.
I had 4 oysters to start followed by their special cheese puffs. The cheese puffs were amazing. They were cheese in breadcrumbs and fried, but they were tasty and surprisingly light.
My final dish was wild sea trout. It was on a bed of artichoke, beetroot and aioli.
It was cooked perfectly, which is difficult with fish, but this was amazing.
I declined dessert, in fact I didn’t even look at the menu because I knew I would be tempted...but I did return for lunch 3 days later.. I did however, return 3 days later for lunch with a friend...
