Remembering a good meal three years ago when we'd also exchanged homes with a local couple, we had a week to try out several local eateries and decided to revisit the Stubbing Wharf for our first night. We scraped in with the last booking available for 8.00 pm. Most of the diners seemed to be visitors but there was a smattering of locals, giving a good natured vibe.
As my wife wasn't very hungry, she chose a starter from the specials board, smoked duck with sesame potato salad & soy & ginger sauce. She generously gave me a taste and I nearly panicked-had I chosen the wrong dish? The taste was an absolute triumph, such gorgeous flavours blended beautifully. The previous evening we had been at the Fishpool Inn, Cheshire, when a companion had the Lamb Henry & I was quite jealous of his choice. Funny how things come to pass as the Wharf also did Lamb Henry. My eyes lit up and I didn't even check out the rest of the menu.
It turned out to be gorgeous, with lots of minted gravy which I adore. The draft Aspalls cider really complemented our dishes & left us really happy bunnies. I only hope it's not another three years before we enjoy another great meal here.
