I was invited along to sample some of the food and drink at this fantastic new bar and restaurant. When I arrived, I was struck by just how stunning the building was. It’s undergone some renovations so the front looks very different but I’d never realised it was there before. The feel is very modern without being over the top, there’s nothing pretentious about the simple d├ęcor and it’s comfortable too. Armed with a glass of Prosecco, I helped myself to some of the food on offer. Clearly everyone enjoyed what was being brought out as every time I went to help myself to more, the plates were empty. I did get to try enough, however, to know that the bread is amazing and this is definitely a place I want to visit for food in the future. East2 This is the kind of place you can go for a relaxed drink and a bite of food. There’s a wide range of cocktails on offer and the food is tapas style with small plates that can be shared amongst friends. You can view the whole menu here.
