Lunch@The Foxham Inn, Foxham

Posting blogs is always more difficult if your computer goes into meltdown. On the journey home from some serious computer shopping we are logging on at the Foxham Inn for lunch. We’ve heard from our network that it is a Wiltshire site which offers something more than just straightforward pub grub.

We arrive and the place is bustling with life. It’s a hot day, so really I’m obliged to refresh my hardware with a good pint of Butcombe Bitter. Rock decides to upload the Pan-Fried Fillet of John Dory with Baby Potatoes, Samphire and a caché of Tomato and Caper Dressing. She loves it.


I select the Moroccan Spiced Shoulder of Roe Deer, for my inbox, served on a platform of Tomato and Preserved Lemon Couscous. There are gigabytes of tender venison and the couscous is downloaded with a series of beautiful flavours. After a while it becomes clear that the application of preserved lemon should have been compressed slightly. I ask to  drag and drop in more of a sweet component – and I’m immediately offered rhubarb chutney.


We ask for coffee and find it is served with home-made biscotti. When we pay the bill we are given a small pack of home-made shortbread cookies. Good touches from a place that we will file in a digital folder marked Revisit Soon.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
