Queuing for delicious food can be tiring, but at Kiln , solo diners have the upper hand. A little birdy told us that staff always try to keep a seat free at the bar for one, meaning you can skip to the front and tuck into the good stuff. Inspired by the rural simplicity of the Thai borderlands, where dishes combine Burmese and Yunanese spicing and flavours are cooked over open fire, Kiln serves prime-quality British meat specifically bred for the restaurant.

Bar seating is a solo diners dream. Watching the action and getting your senses stuck into the delcious food. Serving the food of modern-day Jerusalem, a cuisine influenced by the rich cultures of Southern Spain and Italy, North Africa and the Levant.
