Ginger Dog, sorry
But the reviews were right. One
Salt and pepper squid (approx £7.00)
The squid was delicious but the cashew nuts and grapefruit had absolutely no place on that plate. They did not go at all, in my opinion. I mean, grapefruit and cashew nuts – pah!
Wild sea trout with runner beans and crispy potato cake (approx £16.00)
My friend ate this and when I asked her again for her opinion she had completely forgotten everything about the dish. She couldn’t even remember what fish it was. So, although I remember she ate it and had no complaints about it, it was pretty forgettable.
Belly pork served with crackling, baby carrots, bacon potato rosti, and bramley apple sauce (approx £13.50)
Woeful. The pork was under-seasoned and the gravy paltry. The potato rosti was good but the inclusion of bacon made the dish a fatty pork overload. The carrots were the best thing on the plate (and to be fair, they were really very good), and with this much pork on the plate that is a sorry state of affairs in my book. As for the crackling…
…the crackling was just total crap.
Flavourless, disappointing crap, completely not worth the calories (and I am NOT a calorie counter). It was left, along with half the belly pork, and most of the rosti. As I said, woeful.
