To start I had vodka & citrus cured salmon served with potato blinis and a caper berry, radish & fennel salad. The little blinis were light and fluffy and the salmon was perfectly cured, it could have done with a little creme fraiche but other than that it was a lovely, light starter. If I hadn't chosen venison for my main, I would have gone for the slow-cooked spiced lamb on toast with pomegranate seeds and spiced nuts, which looked incredible.

The pub itself has been beautifully decked out, helped out by the lovely high ceilings and huge windows. All in all, it was a fantastic evening, certainly worth the long trip from Hackney. In the interest of fairness I must mention that my meal was complementary.
