The restaurant is bright, airy and buzzing the Tuesday evening I visited.

I opted for the specially curated Restaurant festival menu – three courses, each paired with a matching wine. To start, I tried the wood pigeon with fig tarte tatin, hazelnut and fig jus. The dish was dark, rich and tender and there wasn’t even a hint of chewiness to the pigeon.

For main course, I had the guinea fowl, served with butternut squash and a black pudding crostini. The guinea fowl was full of flavour and the sweetness of the butternut squash perfectly complimented the earthiness of the black pudding.

I finished off the dinner with the Winter Berry Fool. A decadent mixture of pistachio cream and crispy berry meringue. I have a soft spot for meringue, so this was easily my favourite dish on the menu.

Devised by Head Chef Sam Dunleavy the festival menu was priced at £29 for the three courses and £12 for the wine pairing.

Eastway will soon be launching a new seasonal menu, making it the ideal place for a mid-week meal or a bite to east post-Christmas shopping.
