Eleven, a new restaurant born of the pandemic, is now fully open after making a name for itself with lockdown teakaways. When chefs Danny Land and Ryan Carr and front of house manager Stephen Pitfield found themselves out of work when the pandemic hit last year, they decided to go it alone, opening Eleven in early 2021 with a fantastic lockdown takeaway menu. Serving relaxed modern British dishes, the menu is led by local and foraged produce. The lunch offering features charcuterie, cheese and small plates designed for sharing, while dinner is a five-course set menu. The wine bar offers a huge wine list and bar snacks.
