A novice critic here, but I am a real foodie and a frustrated cook at home.
A group of us visited last Thursday night as part of a colleagues leaving party. She dines at the bugle inn frequently.
What a fab pub, great service, smart decor, excellent (and cold) wines by the glass and probably the best food I've personally eaten for quite a few years. Every mouthful tasty, complex & seasoned expertly.
I would never think of putting smoked tuna with cured salmon, but it really worked thanks to the sharp dressing, my main of baked crab was so good, light & with a slight heat from the horseradish and a delicate crust on top. The pickled cucumber that was served with it really cut through the crab. I am always nervous ordering chocolate fondant, but again it was perfect and the blood orange sorbet a perfect partner.
A perfect dinner that has been in all my conversations over the last two days. Can see why they are #1.
Couldn't fault a thing and promptly booked again.
