Bubbledogs is the front restaurant, serving hot dogs and champagne, that allows James Knappett and his wife to also offer the Kitchen Table, which is behind the main restaurant. They offer 2 seatings for a total of 20 people, with the earlier grouping starting desserts as we started savories. The menu is a tasting menu only but offers an optional 3 extra courses for 45 Pounds. They are well worth it and if anything were among my favorites for the night. They offer wine pairings which looked like nice pours with top-offs if needed but we selected our own wines.
The chef actually participates in the cooking which is in the kitchen in front of the patrons seated at a half-rectangle bar counter. Many of their produce come from their own farm in Northumbria. The staff were very friendly and helpful and as people warmed up there was some conversation between adjacent parties.
