whipped cod roe
No stranger to the elevated pub food at Builders Arms Hotel, the whipped cod is one of my favourites. It’s the hot toasted focaccia soldiers that really seduces you to go in for one more bite, as well as those bright bursts of cod roe.
prawn omelette, aioli & smoked paprika // fish pie, smoked trout, prawns, rockling & sorrel // marinated tuna, celery, fennel & white anchovy
The prawn omelette was fluffy with fresh prawn hidden within. I also loved their take on the fish pie last round, that puff pastry. The side of green peppers was a good little tack on and reminded me of those padron peppers in Barcelona.
chocolate terrine & brandied cherries
And the chocolate terrine was irresistable, thick & intense yet light enough to have you going back for more. With vanilla bean ice cream.
