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.
