Dan Bond the owner, manager and chef was formerly at Coles, as were the rest of his staff. Originally from the Blue Mountains in Australia, Dan says ‘we are all about doing the simple things well – great food, great service and lots of things to drink.’

Everything is made in house with fresh ingredients. Dan sources local game, the best meats from Smithfield Market and a fish supplier he has used for the last seventeen years. ‘I make sure we have a really good product that we cook in the right way.’

Dan’s is open for lunch from Wednesday to Sunday and for dinner Tuesday to Saturday. The menu offers a wide choice with some inventive dishes such as Gin and Tonic battered prawns.

Lunchtime diners can sample sharing platters of three starters, two sides, and bread with balsamic for £28. Sunday lunch has a choice of five dishes per course at £21 for two courses and £27 for three.

The restaurant seats between 20-30 guests and can be booked for parties. Dan plans to run special event nights such as wine dinners. Other events may feature the famous Coles fishcake!

From 1989 to 2014 No 2 London Road was home to Della and Stephen Moran's restaurant, catering business and most recently totheir popular Moran's Espresso. It's certainly a venue that's used to good food and satisfied diners.

Dan quotes George Bernard Shaw on his menu – ‘There is no love sincerer than the love of food.’ Dan is doing all he can to demonstrate this.
