“Greasy spoon by day, beguiling North African restaurant by night, Adam’s has been picking up plaudits for nigh-on 20 years. Breakfast has a strong following, while lunch involves budget-priced dishes such as sausage & mash, or lamb chops. However, it’s the Tunisian & Moroccan dinners that draw the crowds, when tablecloths & mood lighting help transform the spot from café to cosy bistro.

Sardines with chermoula sauce might kick off a meal, followed by mains of kebabs, tagines, or various spicy couscous dishes, with a choice of French & Middle Eastern desserts as a finale. The venue is fully licensed, but take your own wine (£3 corkage) & the evening will set you back less than £20 - although you’ll want to leave a big tip for the delightful service.
