A pie has a pastry case
A thingy has a lid in a ceramic pot
Was it a pie?
Or a thingy?
It was a thingy - the lid was totally separate and, I suspect, only met the meat/dish assembly at the very last moment - nice enough, though.
Best steak & kidney pudding I've ever had
I wasnt impressed at all with the place.
Let me know when they change the filthy carpet and get the decorators in and I might go back.
I am so glad you've said that, it really, really does need sorting, but no one else seems to mind but it makes me heave. I suppose whilst it full to the rafters they don't need to bother. This place should be a jewel not a gem.
Didnt the people here have a go at running The Wayfarer?
Before its current guise
@darben This place should be a jewel not a gem (germ)
If you don't travel much your scope for comparison is limited. I was of a similar thought about the place.
Went with friends on Saturday evening. Pan fried calf's liver starter was possibly one of the nicest things I've eaten this year. The mussels in my main course were very small and the liquor lacking in flavour 'crusty bread' accompaniment was sliced white & brown bread. My mate's braised ox cheek was pretty amazing. The rest rated as just ok.
Smashing pint of blonde beer though.
Went for the first time in a while today. Baked spud with chilli - not quite as nice, or as much, as it used to be. OK, though. Apple and rhubarb crumble, a bit overwhelmed by the cinnamon dusting, I thought.
Someone recommended this place to me last year and I walked in took one look at the filthy carpet and walked out. I then went to The Dog & Doublet which was very clean with nice food.
I think the carpet is reputed to be the second oldest in the country

A good way of judging is the state of the carpet & curtains....
Surf n Turf?
Collars n Cuffs.....
