The Queen’s Gate could be under five feet of snow and it would still feel like summer at Ceru. It could be the rainbow, Aztec upholstery. It could be the jolly smiles of the chefs in the open kitchen. But our money’s on it being the modern Levantine dishes that give Ceru that summer holiday feeling. This is the kind of place you bring a whole gaggle of friends to share as many of the small plates as possible. Hell, bring a bunch of strangers, they’ll love it. The all day menu is full of seafood, fritters, halloumi and spiced meats. Basically, if it goes with mint yoghurt, it’s on the menu. There’s also a £9 lunch platter, with lamb and even more yoghurt, that’s guaranteed to arrive within 20 minutes.
