Lillah means beautiful night in Arabic.  Owner Trevor Blye is reminding people that Middle Eastern cuisine is more than Lebanese or Turkish food.  He worked with Nour executive chef Roy Ner to fuse Egyptian, Turkish, Israeli and Lebanese favourites into great dishes.  It’s about taking traditional bringing Middle Eastern flavours together and putting a modern twist on the dishes. There is something on the menu for everyone with a range of vegan, vegetarian and meat dishes. See what all the fuss is about and make a booking for Lillah as soon as you can. Do not leave until you have had the Nutella baklava.

Four Frogs Creperie

Call out to all dads! On Saturday and Sunday 5th and 6th September 2020 Four Frogs will offer a special beer to all dads dining with them. But wait…there’s more to say about that beer.

The pale ale is brewed by Frenchies Bistro and Brewery who are famous for their homemade beers. We are excited to partner up with them and let you taste one of their most popular beers called the comet.

Pale Ale is packed with Citrus flavours from the rare and wild Comet hops, and backed by a delicious maltiness. The florally taste goes perfectly with orange. That’s why we recommend having it served with our Crêpe Suzette.
