I am so disappointed that I have only just had the pleasure of discovering this neighbourhood gem.
White Rabbit is the kind of place you don’t quite believe is on your doorstep – I’m smitten.
It was packed on a Tuesday night so I’m obviously not the only one.
Decor is confidently understated and perfectly in keeping with the area. An industrial style bar takes pride of place and you can also glimpse into the busy kitchen. The nooks and cranny’s are crying out for me to fill them with groups of my friends, and make sure you check out the private dining room – I’m already thinking of an excuse for a party.
The menu is split into snacks, plates & large plates – designed to share, we recommend 5-6 dishes but you’ll want to order it all.
Burrata is one of my very favourite things at the moment and this was beautifully gooey with a citrus finish & pillowy toast to soak it all up. Summer beets were the sweetest I’ve ever tasted and topped with goats curd with a white wine dressing.
Hake came presented prettier then a picture but I forced myself to dig in. I know – I’m good to you guys. Mouth-wateringly seasoned the potato dumpling’s were made to dip into the paprika aioli.
Lamb belly melted from the delicious fat rind, topped with spring onions and radish. The roasted mackerel was pretty impressive presented whole in it’s own buttery juices. Fennel gratin, was so much more then a side dish but managed to compliment both the lamb & the fish. Potato waffles have moved on from our school days, these come topped with rosemary salt.
If that all sounds like a lot, it was, but expert friendly staff paced things perfectly.
So perfectly that we found room for dessert………
We shared Chocolate Ganache, Mascarpone, Cherry powder and chocolate crummbs. I mean crumbs. A ridiculously indulgent end to the evening. Absolutely delicious.
For those a bit more experimental go for the steeped sweetcorn junket with fondant raspberries & blackberries.
The wine list offered great value, our award winning bottle of Montcabrier at £21.50 was a stand out option.
