AA Review of The Old Spot


"The large window frontage of this period-style stone building picks out this light-and-airy, contemporary city-centre restaurant. Pale green walls, framed menus and wooden floorboards add fashionable touches to the high ceilings, while a few steps down, an extension overlooks the cathedral. Informal yet professional table service and unclothed tables add to the relaxed, friendly atmosphere.


The kitchen takes an intelligently simple approach driven by local seasonal produce, with well presented, clean-cut, bistro-style dishes. Try saffron risotto with peas, mozzarella and basil, or breast of chicken with Parma ham, polenta and wild mushrooms, with orange cake, citrus fruit and mascarpone to close. "
