How to get there:

The prawn and barley risotto was amazing, really creamy, and a nice change being barley as apposed to rice. There are also a few salad options on the menu, which also work well as side plates. The fish croquettes were one of my favourites, definitely recommend getting them. Got a cheeky dessert too, apple crumble and tiramisu. The crumble was for sure a fave. If you're into really strong coffee then the tiramisu is the way to go.
The prawn and barley risotto was a winner for both of us. It was great having something you wouldn't normally choose! The carpaccio was beautiful, so light and delicate. If you're feeling adventurous, let them pick for you. The guys at Grind really know what they're talking about and everything they picked for us was delicious. Make sure you pick up a Russian Summer, that cocktail is BEAUTIFUL.
