Square Meal Review of Pea Porridge ?


As quaint as its folksy name, this quirky and “refreshingly different” eatery occupies what was an old cottage-cum-bakery, with the original ovens still intact, lots of exposed brick, beams, wood floors and plainly dressed tables. The mood is informal and the kitchen puts its faith in top produce for a raft of appealing dishes in the freewheeling modern style: expect lots of adventurous flavours and “unusual cuts of meat” alongside local game and fish. British and Mediterranean themes collide in dishes ranging from a sauté of snails and bacon with bone marrow, garlic butter, flat parsley and capers to Tuscan-style pig’s cheeks or halibut steak with olive-oil mash, monk’s beard, saffron Muscat grapes and palourde clams. To finish, perhaps go for tarte Tatin. Reasonable prices, charming staff and a cracking selection of “natural” wines are a bonus at this “hidden treasure”.
