Home is where the hearth is...

If you haven't been to Restaurant 1796 yet, you're in for a unique treat. In a reverent nod to the history of the property, most of our dishes have either passed through or somehow been touched by the hearth. Guests are encouraged to choose individual main proteins and then fill their table with small plates and shareables handcrafted from local, market fresh produce. We find the whole experience makes for engaging conversation and brings a relaxed atmosphere to fine dining, with enthusiastic waitstaff, an enviable wine list and mouthwatering cocktails and desserts.
