There's an energy and passion about Depot. Not overly precious or pretentious — just fast, fun and fresh.

Most of the cooking is over charcoal or hard wood so there's a real succulence to the flavours. Order a selection of small plates and pass them round.

About Depot

The perfect place to drop in and refuel. It’s chef Al Brown’s place and reflects perfectly his attitude towards food: in season, beautifully cooked, to be enjoyed with friends.

Order a selection of small plates and pass them round. Try the freshly shucked oysters. Then there’s the wine list – small, but perfectly formed, with many of Al’s top picks. Park yourself up.

  • Getting a table

    We have no reservations, which also applies to groups. Tables frequently turn over, so you won't go home with a rumbling belly! There can be prolonged wait times for our larger tables though - the largest of which seats 10. Be early! Celebrating? Sorry you can't bring in your own cakes but fear not, we ccn stick a candle in most things, so give us a heads up!
