Welcome to Depot
The perfect place to drop in and refuel. It's chef Al Brown's place and reflects perfectly his attitude towards food: in season, beautifully cooked, to be enjoyed with friends.
Most of the cooking is over charcoal or hard wood so there's a real succulence to the flavours. Order a selection of small plates and pass them round. Try the freshly shucked oysters. Then there’s the wine list - small, but perfectly formed, with many of Al's top picks.
On behalf of all the team at we look forward to seeing you soon.
