Sunday lunch at the Hardwick

28 Oct

Last Sunday was a beautiful cold but sunny Autumnal day and we took the the opportunity to take a pitcuresque drive to the glorious Black Mountains in Wales. We decided to go for a walk to Skirrid Fawr to take in the amazing views and follow that up with a Sunday lunch treat at the Hardwick, Abergavenny.

It was fantastic and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. I had Hot Middle White Pork Meat Loaf with Grilled Sourdough &Red Onion Marmalade to start, followed by Roast Rib of Herefordshire Beef with Yorkshire Pudding, Roast Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables and Gravy and Local Honey with Stem Ginger ice cream to top it off. Beautiful! Neil had Confit Duck Hash with a Fried Organic Egg, Mustard Mayonnaise and Rocket to start, then Homemade Corned Beef Hash with a Fried Organic Egg, Greens and Grain Mustard Sauce and finally Vanilla ice cream.

We drove home very content with the glow of fabulous food and welsh air.

A week later I had the opportunity to go again (though this time unfortunately not to eat). This time I went to share our passion for fabulous tea with chef/owner Stephen Terry and Restaurant Manager, Lloyd Tucker-Jones.

They loved it and were truly reawakened to the refreshing and revitalising qualities of tea, especially after a meal. Watch this space for the new Lahloo tea list on their digestifs menu.
