Named after a famous racehorse of the 1990s, The Fellow prides itself on providing proper, traditional British cuisine, together with hints of the continent. Take the beef shin, Chantenay & ale pie, new potatoes and greens, for example. Or the sea trout, lentil, pea & chorizo fricassee with a chive vinaigrette. Reading each item on the menu, in the traditional left-to-right manner, sees nothing particularly abnormal until you reach the last half of the dish and a different country's food jumps out at you - same goes for flavour.
Inside The Fellow, the colour-scheme is nearly as dark as the horse after which it got its name. Very deep brown furniture of wall-lining leather sofas, tables and opposing chairs; walls with muted lighting and ceilings of similar shades really spill with classic style; the large windows let just the right amount of natural light in, allowing you to actually see where you're going rather than foraging for the toilets.
With segmented areas for private dining, cocktails, and the main restaurant section, The Fellow appeals to a range of tastes, occasions and lifestyles. They also lay on DJ sets every Friday night. So, get down there at the end of a busy week, order an Old Fashioned, and kick back to some smooth Northern Soul, Afro Beats and sounds of the 50s, 60s and 70s.
