Redwood is a small Californian-style restaurant in St Stephen’s Street in Stockbridge. We went for a family meal to celebrate my daughter Jane’s birthday. It is a small and intimate resto with a very short menu (3 starters, 3 mains, 2 puds+cheese). I started with salmon sashimi and picked vegetables – the salmon was delicately flavoured and initially I thought under-seasoned. However, with the picked veg. it was just right. My main course of sea bass with lime and ginger, served on very soft brown rice with crunchy green veg. was the star of the meal – really top-notch. However, I was a little disappointed in the pud – coconut and lemongrass creme caramel sounded good but was rather bland with very little flavour of either coconut or lemon. However, both my daughters had double banana cream pie which was really good – a banofee pie without the cloying sweetness. Wine was Picpoul de Pinet – one of my favourite whites. About £140 for 4, including 2 bottles of wine and coffee, fixed price of £26.95 for dinner.
Generally excellent – we would be happy to go back
