Tunworth is a type of cheese. No idea who Stacey Hedges is.
They sell Stacey Hedge's Tunworth cheese at Aly Pally Farmers' Market.
Finally went to Season last Sunday. It was quite quiet, only one other reasonably big table that were finishing off their dinner. Service was good, although we were through the meal extremely quickly. Only one small hitch when the wine was poured into my aperitif glass to test. It was only a small amount so wasn't enough to expect a new bottle or a free glass ... Nice bottle of Montepulciano.
Starters - I had paté, B had smoked salmon. Both nice enough but not particularly exciting. Soda bread was fine.
Main courses - B had the steak, I had the bacon. Again, both perfectly good without sparking our taste buds.
Desert - B had the Cambridge Burnt Cream (Crème brulee ) I had the
Rosemary & Chocolate Pot. The latter was quite wacky - rosemary is quite strong! Liked it, couldn't eat a whole one ...
So, I'd say it was perfectly decent, I'm glad it's there and would go again. For us though, it was our first night out since our daughter was born and I guess we would say that we wouldn't rush out and get a babysitter again on the strength of it. Before child, when we ate out regularly, we would go every now and then if it had been there. It was solid without being spectacular.
They do pie, and i'm sure you can get a side order of chips. So that's a yes.
We went last night and thought it was great. I had the clam and crab chouder which was excellent and the lady had steak which was done perfectly.
Easy 4 stars. Maybe a half more for being so close to home...
Last night we went for B's birthday. The Calves liver was absolutely excellent and the ox cheek very nice.
I was in there last night was well with some friends. I sat by the window, probably having my cardigan judged harshly. My mates are vegetarian, so we had the ragu. We also had the cheese and berries and some really nice wine. I hadn't been in therefore. We liked it, good, fresh interesting food, but nice and relaxed and not up itself at all. I agree with Reg, it gets extra points for being close to home.
Just noticed that Season now does Brunch. Anybody tried it out?
That's a very American looking menu for somewhere that's supposed to be traditional English.
Arnold Bennett (after whom the omelette was named) was from Stoke on Trent.
After Robbie Williams, Slash, Lemmy, Neil Morrissey (erstwhile of this parish) and Anthea Turner he's probably the most famous Stokie.
Technically Phil the Power is from Newcastle Under Lyme - he is from Silverdale. All those from Stoke would be very annoyed at the suggestion that Newcastle is in Stoke. However, everyone outside Stoke would not care. Hence Phil the Power says Stoke for ease of understanding.
I take your point though, Phil the Power is Stoke on Trent, and the World's, greatest ever sportsman. Probably too famous for that list, from which I omitted Bruno Brookes.
Brunch is quite big in many other cities and whats on offer doesn't follow much of a pattern. In Madrid, it's very similar to what Season are offering, just what you want after having been out til 5am and in Dubai brunch is a massive piss up for ex-pats with a bit of food.
I like that Season are doing something a bit different from the tried and tested and will certainly give it a go.
As for Mac and Cheese, they call it that in the Caribbean too. Seems to be quite popular as they serve tons of it as a side at the Hawksmoor steak house - just in case a 400g ribeye wasn't enough.
They also have Kraft cheese and I thought that Monterey Jack was American too but it's entirely possible that I'm wrong.
American chocolate is very much worse than their cheese.
USA chocolate is fine when they stuff it full of peanut butter.
