Both The Don and its sister restaurant, The Sign of the Don, pay homage to the original Port and sherry cellars where Sandeman bottled its vintages for over two centuries. The history of the building gives this venue a unique ambience, tucked away in a cobblestoned courtyard off the main street.

The Old Restaurant Room is a picture of elegance with seven original John Hoyland paintings and huge windows, while the other main dining area, The White Room, boasts the artist's dramatic 15-foot abstract, Shooting Stars. The Don is famed throughout the city for its multi-award-winning wine list - a perfect complement to an indulgent yet affordable modern menu matched with highly professional service. You might begin with warm Normandy black pudding with apple, a poached duck egg and Calvados Hollandaise or baked hand-dived scallops en croûte with lime and vanilla butter. Tempting mains include lobster risotto with rocket salad and sauce Americaine, and a haunch of Suffolk venison with spiced red cabbage and pommes cocotte. You won't be able to resist one of the elaborate desserts - finish on a high with a rich chocolate ganache or a delicate rhubarb soufflé.

The historic, vaulted spaces and private rooms are the perfect setting for a truly unique dining experience and the restaurant is available for exclusive hire on weekends
