Michelin star-quality dining by the beach at this fun, quirky little spot

Time Out Says

Sitting in a pretty location with a terrace overlooking the beach, cool weather will afford brilliant seaside vibes to this JBR eatery.

Inside, it’s quirky, with the eponymous utensils hanging up and featuring prominently in the décor, making you feel like you’ve just walked into Tom’s own kitchen for a meal.

Preserves neatly stacked on shelves make up an entire wall and add pops of colour to the rustic furniture, giving the space a vibrant, contemporary café feel.

Coming from two Michelin star-winning chef Tom Aikens, high expectations abound for the food, and we’re not let down.

Dishes include beef cheek with creamed truffle polenta and braised cabbage, and roast sea bas with artichoke, potato and brown shrimp.

Both are brilliant, full of punchy flavour, with incredibly delicate fall-apart, texture. A sheer delight to the palate, these will fill you with glee.

It’s also worth going for a few sides. The mac ’n’ cheese is creamy and gooey, with a beautifully crispy top, while Parmesan and truffle fries will be just the right top-up to your decent size mains. Finish it all off with the not-too-decadent sticky toffee pudding and you’ll already be planning your next visit.

This is good food made with passion by a master. Try it now.

The bottom line

Stunning dishes in a holiday-like setting.
