They came quickly and were devoured quickly with comments and mmms of appreciation and Shern and I agreed we could eat more!
The mustard just provided a little warm heat (I don't like mustard so this was perfect) and the duck itself was flavoursome, the crust was seasoned and the plum sauce was sweet and acidic enough to cut through. Yum!
Gentlemens Relish was very much like BBQ sauce but with a spice tang to it. The egg was perfectly cooked and the steak tender and juicy with minimal fat. Certainly a good hunk of meat.
The braised lamb shoulder (recommended to us by Rachel and Tim who had been a few weeks ago) was amazing. Fell of the bone, put in a chickpea pancake with the picked courgette and eggplant, some lemon juice and yoghurt. Hints of India coming through. We didn't have enough pancakes though so had to ask for some more which were happily brought out to us after a short wait.
Shern and Jon had the same main dishes as Steve and I. Stacey had the parmesan tart which she described as a very good cheese quiche with some great leek and almonds on the side. It looked like a custard tart with a smooth and silky filling. Mr Demery went with the pork schnitzel with a coleslaw and Bulldog sauce which was described to us as sweet and sour ish type Japanese sauce. The schnitzel was all golden and pretty hefty in size. Demery declared it juicy and tasty.
Desserts certainly sounded tempting but too much for us after the generous lamb serving so we continued to chit and chat and had coffees and the boys drank more beer. Great place for a lazy Sunday. Why did we leave it so long before returning?
