Since TK left Norwich for this country style pub, we have found the standard to be somewhat variable, but we keep going back, because when on form, this place can easily justify it’s M* status, as it did last night.
The big man seems to stick to a formula by retaining many of the main ingredients almost all year round, which seems to work quite well by seasonally adjusting accompaniments and or changing the style. Shin of beef has become a classic, as has the duck which seems to please in whatever guise : broad beans in summer, cabbage and chanterelles now. Fish dishes are skilful and rarely lacklustre. Rabbit survived the menu for a significant time to be replaced by chicken. I hope at some point it gets reinstated – amazing combination as described in the intro. The wine list has pleasingly broken away from the former limited brewery determined selection.
A relaxed, cosy evening is guaranteed for around £90 for two courses including a decent bottle of wine. It’s a shame that we no longer see Beth (his wife) front of house because her inimitable character added to the charm.
