"Later, I meet up with a pal involved with a new restaurant in a small town, who asks for a bit of advice. I immediately show her the Bright menu, with its absolute understanding of the sort of thing you immediately want to stuff into your face." READ REVIEW

"What it all has in common is a particular kind of simplicity. Not a River Café simplicity: there’s a lot of process behind these ostensibly artless plates; a lot of ageing and fermenting and culturing; a lot of thought behind some of the apparently quixotic choices they’ve made." READ REVIEW

"Ideas are unfamiliar, challenging – and beautifully executed. It’s the sort of place Michelin must ruminate deeply over – future-facing, lovingly sourced and whip-smart – but still they’re serving pork cutlet between slices of what looks like Mother’s Pride, and the staff are Antipodean-chilled (hell, some are even in baseball caps and dungarees)."

"This is a kitchen that’s all about good eating rather than showy cooking and, on the evidence of what I tried, I’d return their confidence in what they’re doing. This is a great neighbourhood place, where you could eat a plate and drink a glass as easily as tackle a full meal." READ REVIEW

"The overarching impression is of quiet self-confidence. These are great ingredients served not “simply”, which is what every hack claims, but with austerity born of respect and experience." READ REVIEW
