Founded and run by award-winning chef Paul Day, Paul’s Kitchen is a new business with a long history. Originally opened as an extension of a popular catering company, Paul soon realised the venue’s potential as something much more. Fast forward to the present day and this cosy bistro is bustling with activity, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner to hungry guests, whether local or visiting. Inside, the rustic dining area creates a homely atmosphere with its white tiled walls, blackboard menus and display of freshly made cakes. As you enter, you’ll be greeted by a particularly welcoming sight: the well-stocked bar offers beer, wine and spirits, including a fantastic selection of gin. In addition to alcoholic beverages there’s also a variety of hot drinks on offer, and for the kids there’s a choice of freshly made milkshakes. Food is served throughout the day. Stop by from 9am for a delicious breakfast and choose from a selection of traditional full English options (including a vegetarian choice) as well as the indulgent American breakfast, which incorporates a 4oz beef steak, sausage, crispy potatoes, mushrooms, bacon, fried eggs and grilled tomatoes. For those who prefer something lighter, there’s the tasty avocado on toast and if you’ve got a sweet-tooth you’ll love the syrup-drenched pancakes. Stopping by at lunchtime? Check out the range of sandwiches and wraps – the Brie and cranberry baguettes fly off the shelf and the chicken club is not to be missed. For something heartier, try the set lunch menu where you can order classic mains such as a beefburger, cottage pie and maple-cured ham followed by a selection of desserts – the Oreo Knickerbocker Glory is the perfect weekend treat. In the evening, diners can split a variety of tempting tapas with friends or select a main from the list of British classics, which includes sausages and mash, beer-battered cod, macaroni cheese and a selection of steaks and burgers. If you’re seeking a memorable location for a birthday party or the annual work gathering, why not hire out the dining room at Paul’s Kitchen? Suitable for up to 28 guests, this venue comes with Paul’s trademark exceptional service.
