About the restaurant
Climb the narrow flight of stairs up from the red brick lane to enter the saloon. A table in the bustling dining room? Or a seat at the fluted zinc bar? Whether it’s a lunch, dinner or well crafted cocktails with a snack, bookings are essential.

We had the pleasure of celebrating another anniversary here. Such a perfect evening. Staff were attentive and knowledgeable, with great senses of time and space by knowing when to come over, and knowing when to leave us to enjoy our meal. The food was divine. Highly recommended

I have been wanting to visit MTC for years now, after hearing great reviews from friends and it did not disappoint. We had a large group of 7 people which was easily accommodated by booking online. The menu was extensive and well thought out. We had the cheese and wine pairing, along with some deli meats and pate. It was sensational! We will be back!
