You'd swear the owners of One Penny Red opened a restaurant just so they could put a wine list together. Ask a question about an organic or biodynamic bottle on their 16-page list and an owner will sprint out and convince you to spend double what you'd planned to drop in a restaurant that was once a post office. There's genuine warmth to be found in the wood and brushed-metal fit-out, in the smoked-chilli mayo with the salt-cod fritters and especially in the service, where the friendliness of the waitstaff will make you feel like a returning local. That bottle of Pheasant's Tears goes great with grilled squid stuffed with pork and mushrooms, or with a lamb shoulder so tender you could eat it with a straw. Serves are generous, so much so that by the time you finish the light dessert option - a vanilla panna cotta with young coconut jelly and pineapple sorbet - you may still find yourself unable to move for an hour or so. Totally worth it.
