I am back at Helen Browning’s Chop House and this time I have Rock with me. We are here for lunch and the idea of a seriously good pork chop is at the front of my mind.
As we sit down to study the menu I notice the specials board and, to my dismay, at the bottom of the board there is a note saying….no pork chops! Omg. There are alternatives and to help the decision process we order some drinks – I fancy a milk stout from the Bristol Beer Factory and Rock is having an always excellent Camden Hell’s Lager.
Back to the specials board and I see a seasonal special – the Christmas burger. A burger with bacon, brie and cranberry. Rock has a standard Chop House burger. Both burgers are good – easily better than you get from the fast food outlets. My Christmas burger has fabulous bacon and beautiful brie but, I’m not entirely convinced that the cranberry is something I would go for again.
I am convinced that the Bristol Beer Factory milk stout is something I would choose again and I order a second! It is full-bodied and full of flavour.
Lunch here was a pleasant experience….I just really wanted a pork chop!
