Lunch@Three Tuns, Great Bedwyn (3)

It seems pointless to me, but friends of ours who are due to appear on a national TV show next year, now want to be known by their stage names. So we are not meeting José & Matilde at the Three Tuns in Great Bedwyn, we are meeting Antonio & Elisabetta.

Antonio and I go head to head with a pint of Camden Pale Ale while Elisabetta enjoys a glass of Prosecco. We all study the menu and, while we all hope there is something here that we like the look of, there is no conferring at this stage. Antonio steps up to the podium for the first round and orders half a pint of prawns with focaccia and aioli. Elisabetta has a dish of rich macaroni cheese. Rock and I share the crispy fried chicken served with a very fiery kimchi.

Conversation turns from travel to things occupational and then to music…..where we all put our obscure knowledge of album titles to the test. Nobody joins the 200 club.

We all have an idea of what we would like to see in the next round and we are not disappointed. My medium rare Bavette steak is served with marrow bone, chop house butter, hand cut chips and salad. The steak is beautiful. A golden couple of seabass arrive for Antonio and Rock, each served with chorizo braised butter beans, spinach and aioli. On my recommendation, Elisabetta has the confit Creedy Carver duck leg with mash, cauliflower & sticky red cabbage.

Now we are one step closer to the final round – but all this good food has eliminated the need for a full-blown dessert. Instead, we have coffee or mint tea with a selection of the excellent chocolate salami that they serve here.

I predict that all of us will be returning couples because there is absolutely nothing pointless about spending a lunchtime eating at The Three Tuns. Indeed, anyone dining here could easily hit the jackpot!

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.
