Posted April 05, 2018 12:16:59Victoria’s newest dining room concept comes with a new look, but the same old familiar menu.
The dining room is the brainchild of James and Stephanie Minton, who opened the restaurant in April 2018 and have a new design and menu for the first time.
It’s a change from the typical Victorian decor, with the walls of the dining room lined with old furniture.
James Minton says the dining table is made of “old fashioned reclaimed wood” that has been reclaimed from Victorian mansions.
It features a large oak table with a glass top and an antique chair, a modern kitchen counter and an array of tableware.
“There is so much of that old wood, so much that has always been there and it’s a very special place,” James Minton said.
“It has such a special history and I think we wanted to have it here.”
