My new favourite place. I’d previously been here once before with my husband for dinner and had a lovely meal. I decided to bring my brother and sister back for a long lunch on Saturday and was hoping it would be just as good. I wasn’t disappointed. The ambience of the restaurant with great music and candles is brilliant. The food was amazing. I can highly recommend the steaks are high pizza and also the salmon. The staff though really made it for us, especially Lauren. We kept our table all afternoon and enjoyed lots of cocktails. Nothing was too much trouble. A really great afternoon. We will definitely be back.
Passionately stolen by us, for you
Stolen has a number of meanings for the new bar and restaurant. It marks a new generation of the Gerard family taking over the business. Owner Chris Gerard has been building restaurants for others and himself since 1983, but his son Charlie is now behind the new restaurant.
“Charlie has been involved in hospitality since he first tested carrots as a five-year-old and look what has happened to my helping him, he has nicked my business”
Charlie’s idea is to ‘steal’ the best food and ingredients from around the world and bring them together in an all-day menu of stretched sourdoughs, grills and salads: from Sea Bass, to pesto, to hoisin duck and wasabi.
“We’re celebrating exciting national and international food styles by keeping what makes them delicious but reinventing their style and flavours for today” explains Charlie.
Your Own Bespoke Grill
Customers can take the re-purposing even further by creating their own bespoke grill, sauce and salad options.
The Stolen notion is also evident throughout the restaurant, with ‘stolen’ traffic cones and an old bike hanging outside. Inside menus taken from hundreds of other restaurants provide some of the wallpaper.
