"The Taste Plate is an industrial, vintage inspired restaurant and bar that feeds family and friends through Asian inspired small plates & fine wine."
What's an "industrial" restaurant?
Menu Mania's blurb also adds "Same owner as Bowmans Restaurant has re branded and created a relaxing atmosphere to wine and dine."
So this is Bowmans rebranded
Website has menu and ability to make reservations. No other info like hours.

|I am wondering if I should go back and try it out. The lamb I had there last time was superbly cooked but I can still taste the salt in my mouth just thinking about the meal as someone in the kitchen had no clue about seasoning!
