Ex Soho House and Babington House director Ben Crofton and his wife team Vanessa, with Great British Menu finalist Dan Fletcher have opened the much anticipated Somerset restaurant, bakery and wine shop, 28 Market Place, at its namesake address. It is the husband and wife's team first solo venture.
28 Market Place celebrates the very best of West Country and wider British produce with a modern European menu and house-made artisan bread, pastries and filled sourdough doughnuts, made fresh daily. The adjoining wine shop carries up to 100 wines not found on the main wine list, that can be enjoyed in the restaurant or to take away.
In the restaurant, guests enjoy a menu of seasonally changing dishes from head chef Dan Fletcher. Example dishes for the January opening include Fallow deer, beetroot, red cabbage and preserved blackcurrants, Cornish red chicken, delica pumpkin & chanterelles on sourdough toast and Pollock with wood-fired leeks, St Austell bay mussels & sea vegetables, and decadent sharing roasts on Sundays. Vegetarian options will include Stuffed Harlequin squash, hen of the woods mushroom and confit egg yolk.
