The Sun­day Times review – Lise Hand

Lise Hand in the The Sun­day Times on 3 Oct 2021 writes:

Goldie is a bit of a trea­sure. There is a fear­less­ness to Aish­ling Moore, a will­ing­ness to take the plunge afresh every day as the catch dic­tates. The dishes are infused with an exu­ber­ance and imag­i­na­tion, Mid­dle East­ern and east­ern spices and tex­tures woven into local pro­duce grown on the land, caught in the ocean, for­aged on the shore or unearthed at the Eng­lish Market.

Only in busi­ness since 2019 (with a pan­demic in the mid­dle), Goldie is a close-​knit team, clearly immensely proud of their Miche­lin acco­lade — their chef’s first but not, one sus­pects, her last.”

Bib Gour­mand award, Jan­u­ary 2021

A lively, on-​trend seafood bistro with an open kitchen and a stripped-​back feel; the tight-​knit team offer friendly ser­vice and the feel is relaxed and infor­mal. The daily menu offers well-​priced, mod­ern dishes which use a ‘gill-​to-​fin’ approach, mak­ing use of the whole catch from the smaller day boats.
