Chefs is not a place to pore over the menu for hours. A dine-in offshoot of the popular meal-delivery and catering business, the sit-down menu offers a choice of just three plates and one dessert. But that’s no hardship, given the faultless cooking, and it adds a welcome simplicity to the dining experience.
The choice of dishes changes daily, but always includes one vegetarian plate, and could feature an aubergine terrine, prawn and corn chowder, or the truly excellent herb and mustard lamb cutlets with triple-cooked chips. Much of the menu takes a turn through the wood-fired oven. Plates arrive on bespoke trays. Think upmarket canteen, with a selection of side dishes – a side salad of fennel and baby greens with the lamb, or crunchy lime fritter with the chowder.
Portions aren’t large, so you’ll easily have space for dessert. If you’re lucky, it’ll be the duo of chocolate mousse.
The wine list is small with a trio of whites and reds, all offered by the carafe. The focus is on smaller estates, and there’ll easily be something to suit your chosen plate. Filtered still and sparkling water is offered free of charge.
