We return to Eat Wild to confirm our thoughts on their food ahead of the annual WadeandRockandFoodAwards that we are planning to announce at the end of this month.
Like the last time we were here, I have a pint of Steady Rolling Man by the Deya Brewing Company. It is just as good as I remembered it to be. Rock has an Orange Jigger.
Unlike last time, when I had the wild venison burger, I need to try the Clown Killer ! This is a burger with a reputation for fabulousness. It is served in a Hobbs House brioche bun and includes: a local beef burger; shredded gem lettuce; smoky mayo; cheese; and caramelised onions. Plus you get a mug of rosemary salted fries. I had raved about the wild venison burger – the Clown Killer is even better.
Rock is being seasonal and picks the Crimbo Sandwich – free range turkey breast with all the trimmings in Hobbs House bread and with rosemary salted fries. Good but Rock feels the sandwich needs a bit of crimbo salad or even a sprout to make it more balanced.
The couple on the next table, who are regulars here, strongly recommend the sticky toffee pudding. ‘We can resist everything except temptation’. When it arrives, it is a dark light sponge sitting in a moat of sauce that is luxurious without being too sweet. Wow!
The clown may have died but I’m the one that has gone to heaven!
