Fogg's owners Joy and Simon run the restaurant with a charming enthusiasm. The concept of this amiable eatery is based on Jules Vernes' book 'Round the world in 80 days'. Gaze up at a floor-to-ceiling map dedicated to Philleas Fogg's - and your own - journey, taking you through the destinations that determine the dishes found in the solid wood bound menu. Sporting reassuringly solid wood furniture, the interior adds to this 'explorer' feel, giving it a slightly colonial air. The simple honest décor and atmosphere reflected a personable, lived-in feel, as though it'd been tucked away for years - yet still it retained a bright freshness. Candlelit and cosy though still plenty of light to see what you were eating... and that's what we like. There are four or so dishes from each of the continents touched by Fogg (he missed Australia). From Italy through India, on to China, and back to a 28-day hung Irish steak, that was splendidly cooked and tasty indeed. The artichoke, bacon, green bean and poached egg salad starter was a good balance of flavours, an ample portion and a real comfort dish, but what stood out most on the savoury side of things was the Seafood Gumbo. Clams enjoyed the company of oysters, shrimp, crab, ocra and celery in a Cajun masterpiece - immaculately fresh, with a delicate spicy edge. Extraordinary. And my un-fish fussed companion couldn’t get enough of it. The selection worked effortlessly, being unfussy and full of choices that will please any palate. Chef's home-baked and delicious puddings were worth saving some space for too. The chocolate platter included an exceptional white chocolate tart, next to a satisfying chocolate pot, and the smooth crème brûlée was served with a bonus cherry shot. This is all shored up with an attention-worthy specials board, some well mixed cocktails and a comprehensive wine list. This 'round the world' experience is fairly priced at an average of £12 for a main. You may be dubious about the theme at first but Joy and Simon have shown that this formula works.
