Desperate for something OTHER than pub food after 2+ weeks in Ireland, we happened onto the Brown Bear in the (Naas) village of Two Mile House. We started with a summer salad of peaches, jamon Iberico, radish and elderflower over mixed young greens and asparagus with poached egg and watercress - splendid. Then we had the Lamb Ravioli with sundried tomato, courgette and goat cheese, and the Pork Belly, beetroot, cauliflower and black pudding (the best I've had outside of Spain) - [ I have to admit here that it was hard to pass up the starter of scallops with broad bean gazpacho and purple potato and the duck breast, smoked parsnip and plum main... ] but we did go the additional mile and have a side of courgettes and basil aioli that was just perfect!
And then, if that wasn't enough, we got the macaroons (toffee, oh my!), an Irish coffee and cappuccino for dessert... The location was lovely, the ambiance just right, and the service was kind and attentive... The menu was very reasonably priced, in fact... and funny, even the bread basket was exceptional (mini baguettes, tomato bread, a pesto bread, a simple but delicious rye). Honestly, it was one the best meals we had in Ireland. What a hidden gem!
