The Knife and Cleaver is housed in a very pretty, airy Victorian conservatory and serves a constantly changing fish menu. The lunchtime clientele is business people and older, retired customers whilst evening diners tend to be thirtysomething couples out for a romantic dinner who want to linger over a good bottle of wine or champagne. The dark panelled bar with its open log fire is an ideal place to sit for pre or post dinner drinks and serves over 26 wines by the glass and a choice of 20 malt whiskies.What's cooking?Deep fried king prawns on coconut noodles with a lemon and chilli dressing; large bowl of mussels with leeks, cider and cream; live Loch Fyne oysters with a red wine and hazelnut vinaigrette or baked with a cep puree and gruyere; half lobsters; Dover sole; grilled fillet of Sea Bass; rack of Welsh salt marsh lamb set on walnut, garlic and parsley mash with redcurrant and thyme jus; bilberry and apple cake served with Kirsch Anglaise; strawberry and pecan nut meringue; frozen white chocolate truffle parfait
