Hg2 : The Hedonist

De Struisvogel

With 34 places squeezed into a tiny dining room down some precariously steep steps, dining in ‘the ostrich’ feels a tad like a meal in an overcrowded cellar. But it is a delightfully warm and welcoming cellar, rustically but stylishly done out, serving inventive pan European dishes in a convivial atmosphere. All of which combines to make it very popular, and best booked at least 24 hours in advance. The three course dinner for ?23 offers a choice of five dishes in each section, and everything, whether the ostrich steak in red port butter, or the savoury tart with roasted veg and goat’s cheese sauce, has a comforting richness that makes a meal here feel like a treat.
