The English RestaurantIn a world seemingly in love with novelty and fads and gimicry, we aim to offer simple integrity, in never purchasing ready-made, in cooking always and only from fresh ingredients, and in rediscovering the noble and rich traditions of the English kitchen.<br /> <br />The English Restaurant is the product of over 10 years' work by couple Kay and Peter Sinden; what was formerly The Market Coffee House has evolved into a high class, quintessentially British restaurant.<br /> <br />Diners can enjoy kippers with mustard butter for breakfast, afternoon tea of savories, scones and individual cakes on tiered cake stands fresh from our in-house pastry chef, or choose a dinner from venison casserole to pan-fried Guinea fowl, steak & onion pudding to lobster, artichoke puree and lobster bisque.<br />
