Truce broken at the dining table! (5)
I believe the answer is:
'the dining table' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both man-made objects as well as being singular nouns.
Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?
'truce broken' is the wordplay.
'broken' indicates an anagram.
'truce' with letters rearranged gives 'CRUET'.
'at' is the link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for cruet that I've seen before include "Container for condiments" , "Small container for salt or pepper" , "Pepper holder?" , "Truce over container for table" , "Set of containers for salt, pepper, oil, vinegar etc" .)
