The Attic serves up excellent food in a wonderfully casual environment. The rustic-chic interior is filled with solid wooden tables of varying sizes and shapes alongside a mismatch of antique chairs, making for an eclectic space. Old photos, paintings and knick-knacks adorn the walls, while huge antique gilded mirrors reflect beaded chandeliers and exposed rafters. When it comes to the menu, the chef/owner is fanatical about sourcing the very best produce; wherever possible, he ensures everything that goes into his dishes is organic, free-range and sustainable. The menu also changes with the seasons to make the best of fresh ingredients, and attempts to pair wine and beer with different dishes to bring out the flavour of both the food and wine. A must-try is The Attic’s signature Mozambican crab fettuccine with coriander, chilli and lime – a to-dine-for dish if ever there was one! Despite both indoor and al fresco seating, booking here is still essential.
