Hg2 : The Hedonist


Sometimes it is really quite tricky to effectively categorize the cooking of a restaurant and Faff is just one of these. Incorporating everything form crispy duck pancakes to sashimi, ceviche, Schnitzel, osso bucco and nasi goring if is nigh on impossible to classify – but then again that’s maybe what ex-travelling shoe salesman turned restaurateur Dave Wallace intended. The bright, simple dining room is elegant
and uncluttered with colourful, modern fruit and vegetable-inspired paintings on the wall, while floor to ceiling windows flood the space with natural light. For those who want their thinking done for them the selection of degustation (tasting) menus cuts down the decision-making, or faff, factor. A well thought out global wine list compliments the cooking and picks up vintages from as far afield as Israel and Chile; or, for those preferring spirits, a decent cocktail list is available.
