I was staying near Almanak and passed by it a few times before I decided to try their food. The restaurant building is just lovely - at the very water front, pretty both on the outside and inside. I read some good reviews and decided Our waitress was arrogant and spent most of our lunch ignoring us. We waited about 20min for a menu and over an hour for food. Ruined a perfectly lovely lunch because the food is indeed very I was so excited to visit this much praised restaurant.
Decor and food quality - beyond excellent. The food execution was brilliant; fresh oysters well prepared, scallops; brilliantly cooked on the bone hake. Unprofessional, amateurish, Dont visit this place. Service awfully slow. I have seen other reviews and they confirm what i experienced. Went twice. Next time we went for dinner which sounded good but there was 1 server for maybe 10 tables. After 30 minutes, never got water The restaurant is very beautiful in the old building overlooking the harbor.
Just great to sit there. Waiter friendly but not very professional. We had very fine food. First course tomato goat cheese langouster and chicken with crushed potatoes and cucumber. The cava as aperitif Went with a large group. The portions were tiny and everyone wanted more food after the meal. Service was ok, price was a bit silly for the lack of food. One with fish and another one with herring. This is just perfect to enjoy a proper danish lunch with really nice location!
Stumbled in with no reservation. Herring 3-ways and smoked salmon and eggs - simple but great. Great service by John? Will absolutely come back. Flights Holiday Rentals Restaurants Things to do.

They hoped to reinstate decoration as one of the fine arts and adopted an ethos of affordability and anti-elitism. The products created by the Firm included furniture, architectural carving, metalwork, stained glass windows, and murals. Although the Firm was becoming more successful, it did not generate large profits in its early years. Mackail suggests that as a result, the Morris family were placed under increasing financial strain as they attempted to retain the lavish lifestyle to which they had become accustomed. As part of this, he formulated a plan for a second wing of Red House to be constructed, to house the Burne-Jones family.
Although Burne-Jones agreed and together they began to organise the design of the new house, these were disrupted when Georgiana contracted scarlet fever , resulting in the miscarriage of her second child. The plans were subsequently scrapped. With the collapse of his ideas regarding Upton becoming the base for the Firm's operations, Morris began to recognise various problems with the property. Morris decided to move out of Red House and sell the property rather than rent it out, although no immediate purchaser appeared. Having served at the siege of Multan , Heathcote had gone on to become a specialist in maritime surveying, marrying Eliza Margarita Burton and with her having two children, Marion and Rennie.
After retirement he returned to England, moving to Red House with two servants. They also purchased pieces of Morris' furniture that were in the house; two of Morris' chairs remained in the Heathcote family until , when they were sold at Christie's auction house in London to the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington. The Charlesworth family decorated the house's studio with Morris' "Daisy" wallpaper, which remains in place to the present. Holme had become prosperous through a woollen business in Bradford before expanding into the Asian goods trade and by the s he was employed as a buyer for the Liberty department store.
Married to Clara Benton, they had three daughters and a son, who moved with him to the House. Holme admired Morris, and it was here in that he founded the arts magazine, The Studio , which gave importance to the Arts and Crafts movement. He collected over one hundred signatures here, from family members, friends, and visitors. This would be a tradition continued by some of the later owners, with the latest engraving dating to In the House was purchased by Henry Muff — , a draper from Bradford who lived there with his wife Maude and their son Edward , who later became a noted architect.
The Muffs were social activists involved in a number of progressive causes, with Maude being elected to Bexley Urban District Council in , being the second woman in England to have been elected to a district council. In keeping with the fashions of the time, they introduced a lighter colour scheme throughout much of the House. Henry died at the house in , although Maude continued to live there for another decade.

In , Sherwell sold Red House to Walter Scott Godfrey — , the director of a wine and spirits merchant and an author on anti-theism who had been widowed two years previously. Of all the property's residents, he would live there for the shortest time, although carried out one of the largest alterations, by removing the dividing wall between the downstairs waiting room and bedroom to create a study-cum-library and inserted a porthole window between this library and the Pilgrims' Rest, which was designed by his son, the architect Walter Hindes Godfrey.
He lived at the house with his youngest daughter and three domestic servants, however felt lonely at the Red House and found its upkeep too expensive. A medical doctor, Horsfall had served as a medic in the British Army during the South African War , before moving to Britain and becoming a lecturer for the Social and Political Education League and staunch apologist for the British Empire.
Horsfall lost much of his money during the stock market crash of the early s, and tried unsuccessfully to sell the House in We are however confident that, for the sake of its association with the work of William Morris and his group, the importance of this house will be appreciated in the future, and its loss in this regard will be recognised as irreparable. The committee returned the donations that had been offered. The House was purchased by a local estate agent, Thomas Curtis Hills c. Aware of the threats posed to the house, he moved into it with his wife, Beatrice Nellie Foster.
The house is being devoted to the service of the people and Morris was for the people all the time. Both architects working for the London County Council , Toms and Hollamby had a keen interest in Morris and embraced his socialist ideals, being members of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and the British-Soviet Friendship Society.
Deciding to share the property between themselves, they were only able to afford a mortgage with the aid of a loan from Toms' father-in-law; he only agreed to provide the loan if the house was owned in Toms' name, and thus Hollamby became Toms' tenant. Both architects had wives — Mary Toms and Doris Hollamby — and children, and thus both families moved into the building in , dividing the rooms among themselves, with the old kitchen being used as a communal dining room. In , a third architect, David Gregory Jones, joined them at the House, and together they set about renovating much of the property.
Rearranging the former ownership arrangements, the Macdonalds and Hollambys agreed to legally own half of the property each. However, in the Macdonalds left and the Hollambys assumed sole ownership of the House. In , the newly founded William Morris Society held its inaugural meeting at the Red House, subsequently holding a garden party there in to commemorate its centenary.
As the number of those attending such tours grew, especially in the centenary of Morris' death, Hollamby began to search for a way of securing future public access. In he helped to establish the Friends of Red House, a group of individuals who were largely members of the Bexley Civic Society , and who helped to maintain the House and its gardens as well as give tours to visitors.
After Doris Hollamby put the house up for sale, an anonymous benefactor purchased it and donated it to The National Trust, who completed the purchase in , with the Friends of Red House continuing to organise tours. There is a tea room and a gift shop. In November the Trust organised a seminar titled "Red House: Past and Future Lives" at the Art Worker's Guild at which various specialists in the house presented papers on the subject.
It was believed that it resembled the joint work of Morris, Burne-Jones, Rossetti, Siddal, and Ford Madox Brown; as a result, the building's property manager James Breslin described the mural as being "of international significance". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
