Alchemilla occupies six red-brick vaulted arches of a Victorian carriage house once owned by wealthy lace merchants. Despite its rustic look, it’s a modern place; ask for a seat by the open kitchen to get in on the action or a table under the arches for more intimacy. A living wall and a roof garden set the scene for inspired, exciting cooking and Head Chef Alex Bond has an admirable attitude towards finding ingredients which are both sustainable and ethically produced. As well as injecting plenty of his own personality into the dishes, he has an innate skill for bringing together sweet, sour, salty and citrus elements in wonderful harmony, and arranging the highly original combinations of flavours and textures into layers. The esoteric wine list has a bias towards natural wines.
