- What is it good for?
Recently opened restaurant Gilmour's is my local canteen. It has a friendly relaxed dining room with slick decor and open-plan kitchen. You don't need a reservation at lunchtime (yet) and it does a great menu of modern British cuisine at very affordable prices.
- Signature dishes
The slow roast belly of Blythburgh pork with sloe gin gravy, watercress and mash followed by home-made treacle tart, washed down with some excellent French rose.
- Who's the boss
Legendary restaurateur Christopher Gilmour, of Christopher's in Covent Garden fame. Always seen propping up the bar and on hand to greet every customer.
- Tips please
Has a great bar with seriously good cocktails. A perfect meeting place in the evening before dinner. Make a reservation in the evening though as it gets busy. And if there are more than two of you try to book the booth.
- What's the damage guv'?
Lunch for two is approximately £50, more for dinner if you have cocktails.
