This week, the Pig is mostly…
…TOTALLY BUZZING after last night’s Pig Guide Supper Club at the Garrick’s Head. Head chef Tony Casey rustled up a truly splendid, uniquely foodie seasonal feast to celebrate The Pig’s first official collaboration with the pub known locally as Pig Guide HQ, treating a very merry band of Piglets to beautifully-presented dishes (see pic) including asparagus with crispy egg yolk and granola; mackerel cheviche with pickled cockles and English wasabi; spring lamb 3-ways and Apple Amber with salted caramel and Italian meringue, alongside an equally lavish vegetarian menu. The boy did good indeed! Details of the next stop on the PGSC circuit will be duly emailed to loyal PGSC members this weekend, before we go public with the lowdown here; to get with the Piggy Programme, email firstname.lastname@example.org
…already hearing whispers of greatness on the Twitter grapevine about Culture and Cure, the Modern British tapas and Craft Beer emporium that’s magpied its way into the nest formerly occupied by Grappa on Lansdown Road. C&C peeps, The Pig is coming atcha!
…waking up at the Marlborough Tavern, now open every weekday from 8am to serve chic coffee and Bertinet Bakery croissants. And there’s yet another way to make the most of Tavern Time now that spring is here: hop along on Wednesday 30 April (YUP, THIS VERY EVENING!) and feast on an array of highlights from the new Spring menu for the bargain price of just £25pp.
…lovin’ the new-look Boater on Argyle Street, which has undergone a thorough spruce-up and now flaunts four bars (including an intimate, ancient cellar bar/live entertainment/late-night grazing hotspot), three dining areas and a rather splendid garden/barbecue zone overlooking the weir. Cheers, chaps!
…looking forward to taking a sunny day opportunity to indulge in the new bespoke picnic hamper service now available from the Best of British Deli on Broad Street. Here’s the deal: grab a friend, a hot date or a group of party people; place your order (sarnies, sausage rolls, salads, cakes and more); add soft drinks, wine, beer or even fizz to accompany your alfresco treat… and voila! That’s your perfect picnic sorted.Categorised in: News
