The Kingswood restaurant where you can now dine al fresco and enjoy food from a new menu
A restaurant in Kingswood where the food is prepared by a former chef of a top London hotel is now offering customers the chance to enjoy their meal outside.
No12, in Waterhouse Lane, has opened a new garden terrace and there is a new menu with dishes designed to be enjoyed outside.
An area to the side of the premises, which was previously not used, has now been transformed with a decked area with seating for 28 people.
There are flowers, a water feature, sunshades and lighting in place for people who want to dine outside in the evening.
Food is now served at the restaurant in Waterhouse Lane from lunchtime all the way through to evening dinner.
You can eat outside or just enjoy cocktails or nibbles.
If it is just a light dish you’re after, there is a new Terrace Bistro menu which serves meals such as eggs benedict, omelettes and salad.
You can also eat dishes from this menu inside if you want.
No.12 opened in October last year and describes itself as a “relaxed, food lover’s restaurant”.
Its head chef is Jason Marchant, who was trained at the famous Mayfair hotel, Claridges.
Managing partner of No12, Chris Lambert said of the new terrace garden: “Everybody I have spoken to says it’s quiet, it’s chilled, its warm, its cosy and the staff are friendly.”
