The pasta at Kindred is delicious. Start with the roasted carrot triangoli in burnt butter; order the bucatini with guanciale, tomato and chilli; and finish with the refreshing sheep’s yoghurt panna cotta. The menu is focused, uncluttered and boasts delightful flavours. Kindred strives to make as much as they can in house, including the pasta, bread, butter, sorbet, sausages, ricotta, and pickles – so you know that you’re getting quality and care in your meal. Beyond the excellent food, the brick interior and wooden staircase exudes a warmth that matches the cooking. Rustic and cosy, this 45 seater restaurant is the perfect setting for a relaxed dinner with friends, a special occasion or something a bit more intimate.
