Walking in the small front door labeled Dish, we feel like we have walked into someone’s front room. A piano sits by the entrance, a large fireplace faces out opposite it and the original sash windows remain in place.

The staff are warm and friendly and take it in their stride that I am carrying a projector screen around (a hazard of running so many charity groups). As they have just opened for lunch we have the place to ourselves for the first twenty minutes.

I opt for the Dish Club, containing chicken, bacon and duck egg. Having eaten it, I have to say I really feel sorry for ducks – that is one massive egg that they have to expel. It otherwise tastes like a chicken egg though, which was a little disappointing.

Elina’s crab actually tasted like crab, which you would of course expect, but is far from a certainty in some restaurants.

I think Dish is a great place to go if you are looking for something slightly fancier than your average lunch.

Since this review was originally written, Dish has relocated to Boar Lane.
