Square Meal Review of Pea Porridge ?

“Cosy, comforting, different” and as quaint as its folksy name, Justin and Jurga Sharp’s “wonderfully innovative” eatery occupies what was an old cottage-cum-bakery on a square once known as Pea Porridge Green. You can still see the bread ovens, while exposed brickwork, beams, wood floors and plainly dressed tables enhance the cheery, rustic vibe. The kitchen seeks out top produce for a menu of appealing dishes in the freewheeling modern style: expect lots of adventurous flavours and “oft-forgotten ingredients” including snails, pig’s ears and venison heart in season. Justin’s food is gutsy and “not for the faint-hearted”: lightly curried lamb’s sweetbreads with kohlrabi and baby spinach might precede Tuscan-style venison ‘peposo’ with saffron risotto, black peppercorns and gremolata or slow-braised leg of hare with swede mash, trompettes and chestnuts. Well-aged steaks are grilled ‘over the charcoal fire’, while the tarte Tatin is “worth a trip on its own”. Reasonable prices, charming staff and a cracking selection of natural wines earn bonus points.
