Lunch@The Pythouse Kitchen, Tisbury

The Pythouse Kitchen Garden is a bit off the beaten track but we’ve been here before and we know it’s well worth the effort. It is a fashionably individual place, both rustic and elegant, with food that is cultivated enough to deserve its entry in the Good Food Guide. Today we are planning to grab lunch en route to the deep South.

Coffee and lunch are served in a former potting shed with glasshouse windows that overlook a Victorian walled garden. When we arrive we notice a kestrel hunting from one of the trees on the edge of the garden…

Rock chooses the smoked salmon & spinach tart. The tart is wonderful and the salad from the garden is fresh, interesting and tasty. I’ve been nurturing a taste for cider and try the Aspall Premier Cru – a really refreshing drink but at 7% I may need to take a nap this afternoon! I have the pan-fried shrimps and curly kale with a herb & seed pesto. It is a really interesting and unusual dish – I would never have thought of putting shrimps with kale – but they work together surprisingly well. We also share an excellent flower pot of fries.

The kestrel has continued to hunt and entertain us all the way through lunch. I do hope he’s here next time we visit!

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.
