“I think it’s good for people to come and try us and see everything that’s on offer.”

Start your meal with Iris’ infamous smoked haddock scotch egg, served with seafood ketchup and watercress, or try the bluebird baked sourdough with whipped goats cheese, roasted heritage beetroots and sticky walnuts.

For the main course, take your pick from three options. Ask for the potato gnocchi with courgette, basil and black olive, or take the seafood route and order the fish of the day with crushed potatoes and hollandaise sauce.

If neither of those command your attention, give the braise ox tail a go, and enjoy caramelised onion and potato pie, smoked mash and seasonal greens alongside.

Top it all off with a handmade ring doughnut served with vanilla ice cream and fresh cherries.

Alternatively, treat yourself to Iris’ take on millionaire shortbread, served with freshly melted chocolate.
