I hooked up with a friend – Sheries is lined with two seaters that are perfect for dinner a deux – before the flicks at The Savoy. After a good study of the menu, over a white wine and latte, we opted for starters of smoked salmon carpaccio and salmon bruchetta. Both turned up tasty fish with fresh crispy salad and fluffy bread.
Sheries stand out point is the service – the friendly gaffer runs a tight ship and standards are high without losing the personal touch. Our lovely waitress brought me a chicken Caesar salad and my mate a goat’s cheese salad, presented in large shallow bowls they invited us to tuck in.
Being something of a Caesar connoisseur, it’s a dish that’s easy to get wrong depending on sauce, parmesan and alien ingredients, but Sheries version is spot on. Desserts are almost sold out due to the roaring trade on tea and cake so we get ice cream and pecan pie. Now for a snooze in the cinema…
