THE SHOP is Owner/chef run by a husband and wife team.
We pride ourselves on offering free range/ sustainable produce where possible. The menu has something for everyone, fish, meat and vegetarian options. We have a chalk board that changes daily with new dishes, to keep the regulars coming back foe more!
The Shop embraces you with a warm generous welcome from the moment you step inside. This character shines even more so in the attention to detail and the care with which each meal is prepared. Ones of the most intimate evenings we’ve had in CT.
I hosted my 50th birthday lunch party for 30 guests at The Shop last weekend and what an incredibly special, wonderful occasion it was. The food was outstanding ... and we ate A LOT! Everything was served on platters on the table, making for a very relaxed, sharing affair which is exactly what I wanted. We started with home-baked sourdough & ciabatta served with an outstanding Chicken Liver Paté, farm-fresh radishes with butter & salt, smashed Broad Beans with Pecorino and home-marinated olives.
We then gobbled our way through some delicious Calamari, grilled with chilli & garlic, Roasted Bone Marrow with green sauce (my absolute favourite!) and beautiful bowls of dressed green beans & broccoli with almonds.
We had 28-day dry-aged, grass-fed Sirloin on the bone, roasted and carved onto platters and served with possibly the most delicious Cauliflower cheese I've ever eaten, Cavalo Nero and roasted farm carrots.
A cheese board of perfectly ripe Dalewood Brie and Healy's cheddar with Kyles home-made Quince preserves and finally a Lemon Tart - beautiful pastry & the lightest, tangiest, tartest, lemony filling.
No mean feat to get all of that food perfect, which it was, so that was impressive. The service was slick, smooth and unobtrusive so that was impressive too. The fact that Kyle took the time to explain the provenance of everything on the menu was also impressive. But the thing that blew me away completely was the warmth and care lavished on both myself and all of my guests by Kyle and Gabi. They truly allowed us to feel that we were eating lunch in the home of someone we loved which is, ultimately, what made the day so incredibly special.
I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

A 3-course meal...

Broad bean risotto with brown butter, radishes, and parmesan...better than we found anywhere in Italy
Baked lemon pot with chantilly cream...tangy and utterly delicious
ALL FOR R235!!!
The equivalent of...
What you will pay for a few cups of coffee overseas!!!
