The Milestone team seem to be a bit on the roll at the moment and, in addition to taking on Fancie last summer, they've now opened Craft & Dough in Kelham Island.
Located in the old Green City Coffee cafe/bar near Kelham Island Museum, Craft & Dough specialises in two things. Beer (Craft) and Pizza (Dough). It's a great combination - when done well.
And I guess I must approve as I've been twice since it opened. See, since moving to Hillsborough, we've been drinking in Kelham Island more than ever before. It's kinda walkable from our house; via a quick stop off at New Barrack Tavern that is... But, although the beer is great down there, we've been desperate for somewhere new to eat. You know, somewhere not quite as formal as a fine dining three courser at Milestone, but somat a little more formal than a pub lunch.
But what will continue to pull me back time and time again, has to be their craft and dough. The beer list is plenty interesting with the likes of Anchor, Flying Dog, Founders, Left Hand, Hitachino and Nøgne Ø available. And, the pizza? Oh my. Toppings include many delicious things such as ox cheek, smoked duck breast, Nduja, smoked salmon and Bombay mix (not all on the same one... obvs). But, more importantly for me, their bases are pretty fine too (I HATE deep pan).
Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of what I mean...

|Ploughman's starter was like no other ploughman's I've ever had... in a good way.|
|Crafty Cuts - is there anything that ox cheek can't improve?|
|Tandoori chicken - fresh and delicious.|
|Nduja - had just the right level of heat for me!|
