Square Meal Review of Hind’s Head ?

Heston Blumenthal’s original pub venture, over the road from The Fat Duck, offers fuss-free decor and expanses of dark wood alongside a straightforward menu of gutsy Brit-themed food. A particular must-try is the oxtail and kidney pudding, although the rib-eye steak with bone-marrow sauce and triple-cooked chips (an old favourite from the Fat Duck’s early days) is an unmitigated joy. Other dishes are viewed through a contemporary lens – a brûlée of chicken liver parfait, perhaps, or fillet of bream with crushed Jerusalem artichokes and a shrimp and tarragon butter sauce. As for dessert, quaking pudding is a perennial hit. Prices may be high for a pub, but the unpretentious crowd and chilled-out staff make this a destination for every occasion. Real ales and a good selection of wines (including decent Champagne by the glass) help fuel the atmosphere in the bar.

    Nomface :: The Hinds Head, Bray

    The Hinds Head is a 1 Michelin star picturesque gastropub set in the heart of the Village of Bray near Maidenhead. Owned by Heston Blumenthal whose flagship restaurant, The Fat Duck is only a hundred yards away. We parked in the village car park and walked past at half seven to see lots of empty tables, we were tempted to pop in to chance our luck. However we decided against it and went on towards The Hinds Head where we had a booking. On our return to the car we noted that every table was occupied so we stopped ourselves looking foolish! The decor of the pub retains its traditional interior and has a 'ye olde' feel with a mixture of timbers and whitewash walls. Having decided on the Hereford Prime ribeye for main I knew it would be filling so we settled on sharing a selection of starters. We couldn't look past the famous scotch egg made with soft boiled quail egg wrapped in sausage meat and fried in panko breadcrumbs. The egg oozed magnificently when cut in half. This was without doubt the best scotch egg I have ever tasted...
