One of the city's oldest buildings, the 15th-century Prysten House, is the setting for the highly regarded, inventive cuisine of brothers Chris and James Tanner. The seasonal à la carte and fixed-price menus may include Creedy Carver duck breast with red sauerkraut and clementine curd, or seared lemon sole with fennel pollen and mussels. One of the two lattice-windowed dining rooms has a well inside it, and the other is hung with tapestries. A canopied courtyard is ideal
for alfresco dining. The brothers also operate the Barbican Kitchen, a more casual, less pricey offshoot at the Black Friars Distillery on Southside Street.
